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.

Hunter appeared in all 33 games for Virginia this season, averaging 9.2 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1.1 assists en route to winning the ACC's Sixth Man of the Year award. He's expected to miss 10-to-12 weeks, but he should make a full recovery after having surgery, which is scheduled for Monday. 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 logged 18 minutes off the bench and scored 10 points against that game.

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

U.Va. (31-2), which is the No. 1 overall seed in the NCAA tournament, plays No. 16 seed Maryland Baltimore County Friday night in Charlotte, N.C.in the South Region. The 6-foot-7 redshirt freshman averaged 12.3 points per game since January 3, scoring both from the low block and from behind the arc.
