March Madness odds 2018: Virginia, Villanova betting favorites in NCAA Tournament

Twitter/@UVAMensHoops

Virginia's redshirt freshman is just along for the ride on the road to a potential Final Four appearance after breaking that wrist in last weekend's ACC Tournament. Of course, that was a Michigan State team originally considered a national championship favorite, whose seed dropped significantly while battling the injuries.

Virginia treated the ACC tournament just like the regular season, steamrolling through Brooklyn for its third conference championship and likely the top overall seed in the NCAA tournament. He averaged 9.2 points and 3.5 rebounds in 33 games, reached double figures 16 times and led the Cavaliers in scoring on six occasions.

"I feel really bad for him", says Ty Jerome, "I wish he (Hunter) were playing of course, but we don't have time to hang our heads, oh I wish De'Andre was playing". Perhaps the Cavaliers' top pro prospect, Hunter had the athleticism and skill to excel in one-on-one situations both inside and on the perimeter. Hunter shot 48.8 percent from the floor, best among UVA players who attempted at least 165 shots on the season (five per game). KJ Maura gave UMBC eight points on 3-7 while five players added between 5-7 points.

A No. 16-seed has never beaten a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament and with the Cavaliers opening as a 22.5-point favorite against the Retrievers, they seem to also be one of the favorites to cut down the nets in San Antonio - a notion that was not as common in past seasons.

Toussaint has started 60 games since her college career began and leads UVa this season with 11.3 points a game.

"If we can do that, it kind of opens things up more for the guards and takes a little bit off them", Wilkins explained. Hunter is athletically Virginia's best weapon, and proved to be a critical first man off the bench for Tony Bennett's team. Then they captured the ACC Tournament title in NY, finishing 20-1 against league competition.

"You pick up little things from every single person", he said.
