LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Kyle Kuric has left a Barcelona hospital, WAVE3.com learned Thursday morning.

His father, Steve Kuric, confirmed Thursday that the former UofL standout basketball player left the hospital two weeks after emergency brain surgery.

Kuric had surgery to remove a tumor on Nov. 5, then had a follow-up procedure two days later to relieve swelling around the brain.

He relied on a ventilator and was in critical condition for several days.
