DeAndre Hunter: Will miss NCAA Tournament

Virginia, considered one of the favorites to win the national title, will be without De'Andre Hunter for the entire NCAA tournament due to a broken wrist.

Hunter suffered the injury during the ACC Tournament.

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. He's expected to miss 10-to-12 weeks, but he should make a full recovery after having surgery, which is scheduled for Monday. Hunter was named the ACC's sixth man of the year after the regular season, and was also named to the All-ACC freshman team. Hunter was named ACC Co-Rookie of the Week following his 22-point performance at Miami on February 18. Hunter averaged 9.2 points and 3.5 rebounds through 33 games this season. 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.

U.Va. - the NCAA tournament's No. 1 overall seed - opens play on Friday against 16th-seeded UMBC in Charlotte. He also had 22 points in a victory at Miami on February 18.
