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

The Cavaliers announced Tuesday, they have lost freshman guard De'Andre Hunter for the season with a broken wrist, meaning he will not be able to participate in March Madness.

There were times during Virginia's run to the ACC basketball regular-season and tournament titles that coaches and players wondered aloud where they'd be without redshirt freshman forward De'Andre Hunter. He will have surgery Monday and miss 10 to 12 weeks.

The loss of Hunter is a crushing blow to a Virginia team in the midst of one of the best seasons in school history.

Following U.Va.'s 71-63 win against North Carolina on Saturday night in Brooklyn, N.Y.in the ACC tournament championship game, Cavaliers team trainer Ethan Saliba worked on Hunter's left wrist as reporters entered the locker room for postgame interviews with players.

However, analysts said this will bring in only a short-term relief to the industry reeling under financial stress. The NCDs of up to Rs10,000 crore can be raised in tranches or a series at rates may be approved from time to time.


Hunter's emergence as a versatile scoring threat was a huge part of that success. He recorded 14 points and 10 rebounds in a 66-37 victory at Pittsburgh on February 24.

U.Va. - the NCAA tournament's No. 1 overall seed - opens play on Friday against 16th-seeded UMBC in Charlotte.

Without Hunter, Virginia becomes less versatile on both ends of the floor. Look for center Jack Salt and forwards Isaiah Wilkins and Mamadi Diakite to absorb most of Hunter's playing time.
