Virginia's DeAndre Hunter out for full NCAA Tournament

ACC championship

The Virginia Cavaliers rolled to the ACC regular season crown and the roll continued with the Cavaliers winning the conference postseason with a 71-63 decision versus North Carolina.

How they make a run: Their stifling defense continues to shut down even the most unsafe offenses, and the Cavaliers get to San Antonio with a legit shot at their first national title ever. After suffering their first loss in early December to then-No. They will face Texas Southern on March 14 at 6:40 p.m., also as part of the tournament's "First Four" games. The fan base showed out en force, enchanted by a magical run that included an ACC championship.

The following season, it looked as if the Cavaliers might finally find success in March. If the pattern holds up, this Virginia team would make the school's first Final Four since 1984.

He reached double figures in 16 games and was Virginia's leading scorer six times.

Dominique Toussaint and Jocelyn Willoughby shared a common goal a year ago as soon as they stepped on Grounds: Get the Virginia women's basketball team back to the NCAA Tournament.

ACC championship

"Each year presents different opportunities and challenges", coach Tony Bennett said after the field was unveiled Sunday.

The Cavaliers could play sophomore forward Mamadi Diakite, who has produced well late in the season, more minutes.

One potential explanation is an over-reliance on individual players offensively.

One of the main reasons the system works so well is Bennett's roster usually features upperclassmen with National Basketball Association talent, from Joe Harris to Malcolm Brogdon to London Perrantes. Hunter is expected to make a full recovery and be sidelined for 10 to 12 weeks.

Hunter's versatility was key for the Cavaliers at the offensive end. Boyle and Cal eliminated Virginia in the 2009 tournament. With fewer possessions each one carries more weight, meaning random outcomes on a few possessions become magnified. Then they captured the ACC Tournament title in NY, finishing 20-1 against league competition.
