Virginia's De'Andre Hunter will miss NCAA Tournament with broken left wrist

Virginia's De'Andre Hunter will miss NCAA Tournament with broken left wrist”

March Madness is officially upon us. But its odds just took a hit with this discouraging news.

U.Va. - the NCAA tournament's No. 1 overall seed - opens play on Friday against 16th-seeded UMBC in Charlotte.

Hunter suffered the injury during the ACC Tournament.

According to a release from Virginia, freshman guard De'Andre Hunter will miss the rest of the season with a broken left wrist.

Also in Virginia's portion of the bracket is CT, who is the tournament's overall No. 1 seed. He is expected to make a full recovery and be out for 10 to 12 weeks.

During his first season with the Cavaliers, Hunter averaged 9.2 points and 3.5 rebounds in 33 games. Anderson returned for the ACC and NCAA tournaments but clearly wasn't himself, and the second-seeded Cavaliers lost to the Michigan State Spartans in the second round of the Big Dance.

This year, the Cavaliers finished the season No. 7 in the conference and advanced it to the quarterfinal round of the ACC Tournament, where they fell to No. 5 team in the nation - Notre Dame. The game will be televised on TNT.
