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

ACC Sixth Man of the Year De'Andre Hunter (Philadelphia, Pa.) has been ruled out for the NCAA Tournament with a broken left wrist, Virginia head coach Tony Bennett announced Tuesday (March 13).

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

He'll be the first U.Va. player this season to miss a game because of injury. He averaged 9.2 points and 3.5 rebounds in 33 games, reached double figures 16 times and led the Cavaliers in scoring on six occasions.

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

He scored his season-high 23 points November 19 in U.Va.'s 73-53 win against Monmouth.
