De'Andre Hunter out for NCAA Tournament: Broken wrist

De'Andre Hunter out for NCAA Tournament: Broken wrist

The Cavaliers, the top seed in the South Region, open NCAA Tournament play Friday night against UMBC in Charlotte, North Carolina.

There were times during Virginia's run to the ACC basketball regular-season and tournament titles that coaches and players wondered aloud where they'd be without redshirt freshman forward De'Andre Hunter.

Hunter, who was the ACC Sixth Man of the Year, is the best athlete on the Cavaliers and consistently provided a spark off the bench. A recovery timeline now projects Hunter will be healthy in 10-12 weeks. Hunter's broken wrist also means U.Va. will head into its third NCAA tournament in the last four seasons while dealing with a significant injury.




This is the second straight year they have lost a key player late in the season.

Although he did not start any games, Hunter averaged just under 20 minutes and played 20, 20 and 18 minutes in three ACC Tournament games with a bandaged left (non-shooting) hand. He reached double figures in 16 games and was Virginia's leading scorer in six contests. His scoring high was 23 points in his fourth game, a 73-53 victory over Monmouth on November 19.
