The university announced freshman forward DeAndre Hunter will miss the NCAA Tournament, having suffered a broken wrist in the ACC Tournament.

Head coach Tony Bennett had multiple media availabilities on Tuesday morning and offered no indication of Hunter's injury, which occurred during the ACC Tournament, according to UVa's announcement. He is expected to make a full recovery and be out for 10 to 12 weeks.

And after seeing some pre-production images of Cage in the suit, most fans are glad Burton's vision got torpedoed. And then we have Nic Cage, who - well, I have no idea why they selected him for this role.

He'll be the first U.Va. player this season to miss a game because of injury.

Hunter, the 2018 ACC Sixth Man of the Year, was a key contributor to the Cavs' success in sweeping the ACC regular season and tournament championships. Anderson returned for the ACC and NCAA tournaments but clearly wasn't himself, and the second-seeded Cavaliers lost to the Michigan State Spartans in the second round of the Big Dance. Hunter was named ACC Co-Rookie of the Week following his 22-point performance at Miami on February 18. U.Va. scored five points in the final 0.9 seconds to get the improbable win. He also had 22 points in a victory at Miami on February 18. In his absence, Mamadi Diakite and Justice Bartley will likely see increased minutes.
