Virginia’s biggest concern today is the health of their head coach. Tony Bennett collapsed on the sideline with just seconds remaining in the first half of their first round-game against the Hampton Pirates.

Bennett’s right leg appeared to buckle as he fell to the floor. Virginia’s medical staff quickly rushed to Bennett’s side to get him seated as he appeared to be in pain. He has no known medical issues.



Bennett returned to the sideline for the second half of the matchup, claiming he was suffering from dehydration.

The Cavaliers cruised to an 81-45 victory behind 19 points from senior forward Anthony Gill.

Still, a scary moment for the Cavaliers and their head coach.
