Kevin Ware Injury Could Put Louisville Scholarship At Risk
Wow… now that would be a slap in the face.
Check it out:
Louisville men’s basketball player Kevin Ware’s gruesome injury Sunday evening did not just mean the end of his season and, potentially, his basketball career. It also puts at risk his college education and could leave Ware and his family responsible for medical bills related to an injury that Ware sustained while helping make his university millions of dollars.
Though the National Collegiate Athletic Association recently began allowing multiyear scholarships for top athletes – over the objections of more than 200 schools – most collegiate scholarships last for just one year. If a player gets injured, as Ware did on Sunday, the coach can simply decline to renew his scholarship.
