UVA's De'Andre Hunter to miss NCAA Tournament with broken wrist

UVA's De'Andre Hunter to miss NCAA Tournament with broken wrist”

A recovery timeline now projects Hunter will be healthy in 10-12 weeks.

Hunter, a redshirt freshman, sat out last season, but made an immediate impact once he joined coach Tony Bennett's lineup. He played just 5 minutes in a first-round victory against North Carolina-Wilmington in the NCAA Tournament, and then not at all when Virginia lost 65-39 to Florida in the second round.

When the bracket was released Sunday, the Virginia Cavaliers were given the tournament's No. 1 overall seed after winning both the Atlantic Coast Conference regular season and tournament titles.

Hunter's emergence as a versatile scoring threat was a huge part of that success. The 6-foot-7 redshirt freshman averaged 12.3 points per game since January 3, scoring both from the low block and from behind the arc.

Hunter, whose banked-in, buzzer-beating 3-pointer at Louisville might be the single most memorable play of the Cavaliers' magic season to date, averaged 9.2 points and 3.5 rebounds in 33 games and was also named to the ACC's all-rookie team.

Hunter was named ACC Co-Rookie of the Week following his 22-point performance at Miami on February 18.

Hunter's injury is a devastating blow to Virginia's Final Four hopes. Hunter could defend multiple positions and he posed matchup problems on offense for opposing forwards.

The Cavaliers open their NCAA Tournament Friday when they take on UMBC Friday at 9:20 p.m. ET.
