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

Unfortunately, one team was just hit with a major stroke of bad luck.

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.

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 suffered the injury during the ACC tournament and is scheduled to have surgery on the injured left wrist next week. Hunter is expected to make a full recovery and be sidelined for 10 to 12 weeks.

Head coach Tony Bennett had multiple media availabilities on Tuesday morning and offered no indication of Hunter's injury, which occurred during the ACC Tournament, according to UVa's announcement.

The Cavaliers, the top seed in the South Region, open NCAA Tournament play Friday night against UMBC in Charlotte, North Carolina.
