In the message board debates over Tony Bennett's Virginia NCAA Tournament history, many are always quick to point out that the Cavaliers have a history of important injuries come tournament time. The 2012 team had no Malcolm Brogdon and Joe Harris was playing with a broken hand. In 2014, Anthony Gill got hurt in the Michigan State game. In 2015, Justin Anderson was trying to come back from a broken hand. The 2016 team was healthy until it suffered a collective mental breakdown with 9 minutes to go in the Elite Eight. The 2017 team went into the NCAA tournament without Isaiah Wilkins, and in 2018, De'Andre Hunter and Jay Huff were injured.
