Virginia just can't have nice things
ACC 6th man of the year. Tough break, pun intended
Sucks for them. Averaging little over 9 pts and 3.5 boards.
Three days before it begins NCAA tournament play against UMBC, top overall seed Virginia received some bad news regarding a key contributor.
Redshirt freshman forward De’Andre Hunter, who won the ACC Sixth Man of the Year award, will miss the NCAA tournament due to a broken left wrist. Hunter suffered the injury during the ACC tournament, and according to the school, he’ll be sidelined for 10-12 weeks after undergoing surgery on March 19.

One of their best defenders though. This is a big blow to them.
I feel terribly for the kid. That really sucks.
Tough loss, but I believe they can still win without him based on their style of play. Was going to be a tough road anyways. Even though they are ugly to watch at times, they are a team I like to root for. Sucks to have this happen at this point.
Sounds like crap that happens to us.
Time to edit my bracket
That is unfortunate......hate to see players miss games because of injury.
It is terrible.
I just think of another player that’s missed more postseasons due to injuries than anyone in memory. And would have done more than almost anyone if given the chance.
It kills me yet he’s been so cool about it. Such a class act. I will leave him nameless because to hear his name will just make us all think what could have been.
Shoot, and I had them in my Final 4.
