Broken wrist benches UVA's De'Andre Hunter for NCAA Tournament

UVA’s De’Andre Hunter to miss NCAA Tournament with broken wrist

UVA’s De’Andre Hunter to miss NCAA Tournament with broken wrist

Is it ideal that Virginia will be without a versatile player like Hunter so close to the start of the tournament?

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.

This will be the first matchup between the teams in more than 12 years as they last met in December 2005, a Virginia win. The team will miss Hunter, the ACC sixth man of the year, but I wouldn't discount their championship aspirations by much.

Virginia (31-2) will face No. 16 seed Maryland-Baltimore County on Friday night in the tournament's South Region with the victor moving on to face the victor of the 8/9 matchup between Creighton and Kansas State. Cavaliers head coach Tony Bennett announced the news on Tuesday afternoon.

The 6-9, 228-pound Diakite averaged 5.4 points and 3 rebounds in 33 games this season.

Since the past few days, many rumours have been making rounds in the industry that Aamir and Kiran's Paradise is in trouble. So, it's definitely a challenging film for him and he is coping very well with it", Aamir told the media.


The Cavaliers have allowed only one opponent to shoot 50 percent against them this season and have gone 34 straight games without allowing 70 points while allowing the fewest points in the country this season (53.4 per game).

In the 2015 tournament, starting guard Justin Anderson had a broken finger that required surgery, and starting forward Isaiah Wilkins had a lingering illness in last season's tournament that limited him to five minutes in the first round and kept him out completely in the second round.

U.Va. also has seldom-used 7-1 redshirt freshman Jay Huff, a stretch forward, on the bench.

According to Synergy Sports, De'Andre Hunter shot 60 percent on isolation attempts this season; he also scored 1.27 points per possession on non-post-up attempts at the basket.
