CRAWFORD | Kyle Kuric speaks via Skype to KFC Yum! Center crowd

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Two weeks after undergoing brain surgery, former University of Louisville basketball player Kyle Kuric spoke live to a KFC Yum! Center crowd during a University of Louisville basketball game Saturday afternoon.

The crowd jumped to its feet upon seeing Kuric on the big screen. Then listened as Kuric, lying on a bed, described what he's been through.

"It all happened so quick," Kuric said. "Just had a headache that wouldn't go away. Had a CT scan and then was in the hospital for surgery."

Kuric left his Barcelona hospital on Wednesday after a two-week ordeal to remove a benign brain tumor discovered after he had complained of a migraine. Kuric left his Herbalife Gran Canaria team for treatment, but got great support from his Spanish professional league. Every team donned T-shirts bearing the words, "Courage Kyle."

"Trying to take things a little slow," Kuric said. "Probably be a little slow for a few weeks, then back to Gran Canaria and hope to be playing by January."

Kuric thanked the Louisville fans for the outpouring of support and well-wishes he has received.

"I just want to thank everybody for all the support that they've given me on Twitter and Facebook," he said.
