Virginia, considered one of the favorites to win the national title, will be without De'Andre Hunter for the entire NCAA tournament due to a broken wrist.

Virginia's men's basketball team managed to escape injury issues throughout the regular season and ACC tournament, but that good fortune has ended.

Hunter, a 6-foot-7 redshirt freshman guard, suffered the left wrist injury during the ACC tournament, according to a news release from U.Va.'s athletic department. He is expected to be out 10-12 weeks.
