NCAA Tournament: No. 1 Virginia loses De'Andre Hunter to broken wrist

NCAA Tournament: No. 1 Virginia loses De'Andre Hunter to broken wrist

Virginia forward De'Andre Hunter will miss the NCAA Tournament with a broken wrist, the school announced on Tuesday afternoon.

Hunter, the ACC's sixth man of the year, is scheduled to undergo surgery on Monday. 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.

Following U.Va.'s 71-63 win against North Carolina on Saturday night in Brooklyn, N.Y.in the ACC tournament championship game, Cavaliers team trainer Ethan Saliba worked on Hunter's left wrist as reporters entered the locker room for postgame interviews with players. March Madness is officially upon us. 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. His scoring high was 23 points in his fourth game, a 73-53 victory over Monmouth on November 19.

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 was the primary player off the bench, and, at times, was UVa's most effective weapon.

Guard Marco Anthony got a chance to shine January 31 in a rare big role off the bench when Johnson was serving the first game of a three-game suspension.
