March Madness is officially upon us. Hunter suffered a broken left wrist during the Cavaliers' run at the conference tournament in Brooklyn last week.

The Virginia Cavaliers will enter the 2018 NCAA Tournament without De'Andre Hunter who has a broken left wrist, as announced by the University on Tuesday evening.

Virginia opens the NCAA tournament against the UMBC Retrievers on Friday.

Anderson was more integral to that Virginia team than Hunter is this season, but it's another example of bad luck hitting head coach Tony Bennett at the worst possible time.

Hunter was named the ACC Sixth Man of the Year after averaging 9.2 points and 3.5 rebounds off the bench for the Cavaliers. A recovery timeline now projects Hunter will be healthy in 10-12 weeks. He was named to the All-ACC Freshman Team.

For the first time since 2010, the Virginia women's basketball team will appear in the NCAA Tournament. The game, at the Spectrum Center in Charlotte, is set for approximately 9:20 p.m and will be televised on TNT.
