Hunter, a redshirt freshman, averaged 9.2 points and 3.5 rebounds in 33 games for the top-ranked Cavaliers.

On March 1 at Louisville, Hunter's game-winning 3-pointer that banked off the glass from almost 30 feet away from the basket at the buzzer propelled a 67-66 victory. The guard from Philadelphia played just under 20 minutes a game and shot 48.8 percent from the field and 38.2 percent from three. He was also second on the team in steals with 1.2 per game.

A fast-rising National Basketball Association prospect, Hunter was also starting to flash an efficient three-point stroke, too. That's not a lot of ground for his replacements to make up, nor is it enough to significantly discount a team that was more than 32 net points per 100 possessions better than an average team this season, the highest in the nation according to statistical guru Ken Pomeroy. Perhaps. This kid is a really, really good player. "Can they win some games? Yes".
