No. 4 Virginia tops Middle Tennessee in Bahamas

PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas (AP) - De'Andre Hunter was everywhere for fourth-ranked Virginia, finishing with 15 points, eight rebounds and a career-high nine assists.

''I thought De'Andre's completeness showed offensively and defensively,'' Virginia coach Tony Bennett said.

The 6-7 sophomore's size and athleticism caused problems for the Blue Raiders on the perimeter.

''We really spaced the floor (against) the 1-3-1 press,'' Hunter said. ''And I was just looking for my shot when the guys kicked it to me in the corner.''

Kyle Guy also scored 15 points for the Cavaliers (4-0), who led 9-0 and 30-9. But they needed Guy's 3-pointer to start a 9-0 run after the Blue Raiders had clawed to within 38-30 early in the second half.

Antonio Green scored 11 points to lead Middle Tennessee (3-2), which shot 39 percent.

The Cavaliers advanced to Thursday's semifinals to face Dayton, while the Blue Raiders will face Butler in the consolation bracket.
