Virginia to play NCAAs without freshman sixth man De'Andre Hunter”

March Madness is officially upon us.

Virginia's NCAA Tournament is not off to a good start.

1 overall seed in the NCAA men's basketball tournament, announced Tuesday that redshirt freshman De'Andre Hunter has been lost for the season with a broken left wrist.

Anderson was more integral to that Virginia team than Hunter is this season, but it's another example of bad luck hitting head coach Tony Bennett at the worst possible time.

Hunter appeared in all 33 games for Virginia this season, averaging 9.2 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1.1 assists en route to winning the ACC's Sixth Man of the Year award. Hunter is expected to make a full recovery and be sidelined for 10 to 12 weeks. 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 was also named to the All-ACC Freshman Team.

Virginia tips off against No. 16 seed UMBC (24-10) in the first round of the NCAA Tournament on Friday, March 16. The game, at the Spectrum Center in Charlotte, is set for approximately 9:20 p.m and will be televised on TNT.
