Virginia will be without Isaiah Wilkins for the foreseeable future.
UNC Wilmington took Virginia to the brink in their first round matchup on the first day of the NCAA Tournament. The Cavaliers escaped with a 76-71 win, but suffered a loss during the game.
Starter Isaiah Wilkins has reportedly been battling strep throat for the past three weeks and only managed five minutes in today’s game. When asked if Wilkins would participate in the Cavaliers’ upcoming game, Wilkins responded with, “I’m done.”

Not great for a team that struggled in its first round game. Wilkins said he’ll cheer on his teammates instead of joining them on the court.
“I’m definitely going to put what I have going on aside and cheers these guys on on Sunday.”
Virginia will face either Florida or East Tennessee State on Sunday.
