Broken wrist benches UVA's Hunter for NCAA Tournament

The Cavaliers announced Tuesday, they have lost freshman guard De'Andre Hunter for the season with a broken wrist, meaning he will not be able to participate in March Madness. Hunter suffered a broken left wrist during the Cavaliers' run at the conference tournament in Brooklyn last week.

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. No. 1 overall seed Virginia will be without one of its star players for the duration of the NCAA Tournament.

U.Va. announced Tuesday it will be without Hunter, the ACC's Sixth Man of the Year this season, during the upcoming NCAA tournament. Hunter is expected to make a full recovery and be sidelined for 10 to 12 weeks.

Virginia tips off against No. 16 seed UMBC (24-10) in the first round of the NCAA Tournament on Friday, March 16. Toussaint averages 11.3 points and 3.7 assists per game. Hunter was also named to the All-ACC Freshman Team. The game will be televised on TNT.
