The All-ACC Freshman Team honoree averaged 9.2 points and 3.5 rebounds this season, proving to be a physical and vital defensive force for the best team in college basketball. He reached double figures in 16 games and was Virginia's leading scorer in six contests. Hunter was named ACC Co-Rookie of the Week following his 22-point performance at Miami on February 18. The 83-47 loss to the Fighting Irish (29-3, 15-1) March 2 was the most recent game for the Cavaliers.
