Virginia's De'Andre Hunter Will Miss NCAA Tournament Due to Broken Wrist

  • ACC championship

The Retrievers relied heavily on the production of Jairus Lyles and he responded with a game high 27 points on 10-23 including 5-7 from long range. Virginia is first in opponent points per game, allowing an average of just 52.8, and it is not even close-Cincinnati, in second place, allows 57.3.

How they make a run: Their stifling defense continues to shut down even the most risky offenses, and the Cavaliers get to San Antonio with a legit shot at their first national title ever. The 24-8 Quakers are coming off their first winning campaign in six years and make their first March Madness appearance since 2007. The fan base showed out en force, enchanted by a magical run that included an ACC championship. In this program, everybody wants the instant success and it's hard to find that.

Bennett, who is 219-85 in nine seasons at Virginia, credits experience with making that success possible. Without Hunter, Virginia's title odds will undoubtedly take a hit.

He will have surgery Monday and miss 10-12 weeks. Perhaps the Cavaliers' top pro prospect, Hunter had the athleticism and skill to excel in one-on-one situations both inside and on the perimeter.

Over-reliance on one scorer is not a problem for this year's team. Hunter averaged 9.2 points and 3.5 rebounds per game. This wasn't the case for any of Virginia's other tournament teams. With fewer possessions each one carries more weight, meaning random outcomes on a few possessions become magnified. Isaiah Wilkins leads in rebounds with 6.3 while Jerome Ty tops in assists with 3.9 per game. He has appeared in only three games with Cleveland and has spent most of his time with the Canton Charge of the National Basketball Association G League. The reason fans are so drawn to it is that very unpredictability. The Cavaliers were picked to finish sixth in the ACC in preseason media poll before the season. Good teams lose sometimes. "We have to find a way to get through everything". This team is arguably better positioned to do so than any other team he has coached, as talented as those teams were. However, there are no guarantees in March.
