Virginia's DeAndre Hunter out for full 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 is expected to make a full recovery and be sidelined for 10 to 12 weeks.

Hunter, the 2018 ACC Sixth Man of the Year, was a key contributor to the Cavs' success in sweeping the ACC regular season and tournament championships.

The situation is somewhat reminiscent to when Justin Anderson missed time toward the end of the 2014-15 season with a broken finger.

He said some people may argue that a space force would "compromise the sanctity of considering space to be off limits from warfare".

Hunter, whose banked-in, buzzer-beating 3-pointer at Louisville might be the single most memorable play of the Cavaliers' magic season to date, averaged 9.2 points and 3.5 rebounds in 33 games and was also named to the ACC's all-rookie team. He reached double figures in 16 games and was Virginia's leading scorer in six contests.

On March 1 at Louisville, Hunter's game-winning 3-pointer that banked off the glass from almost 30 feet away from the basket at the buzzer propelled U.Va.to a 67-66 victory.

Hunter's departure leaves No. 1 seed Virginia (31-2) with only seven rotation players heading into the NCAA Tournament. In his absence, Mamadi Diakite and Justice Bartley will likely see increased minutes. 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.
