Broken wrist benches UVA's De'Andre Hunter for NCAA Tournament

Hunter averaged 9.2 points and 3.5 rebounds per game. At 37, Venus is the oldest woman in the draw.

A No. 16 seed has never beat a No. 1 seed in NCAA tournament history, so odds will remain low leading up to Friday's game, but don't doubt the 2017-18 Retrievers men's basketball team as they look to make history. He played just 5 minutes in a first-round victory against North Carolina-Wilmington in the NCAA Tournament, and then not at all when Virginia lost 65-39 to Florida in the second round. At the ACC Tournament in Brooklyn, Wilkins said those frontcourt players had previously discussed trying to lighten the load on the Wahoos' guards. Nigel Johnson gave the Cavaliers 12 points, six rebounds and six helpers on 4-14 while De'Andre Hunter tossed in ten points. Despite the hiatus, the connections between the two teams are noticeable. While his dad was on the staff at Virginia, Odom spent the majority of his childhood in Charlottesville.

Villanova enters the tournament pegged as the top seed in the East Regional bracket and as a +450 favorite on the national championship futures, while Xavier and Kansas sit atop the West and Midwest Regional brackets, respectively. "Improve, prepare well, play to win".
