Virginia guard Justin Anderson could return from a finger injury when the Cavaliers face Louisville on Saturday, head coach Tony Bennett said Tuesday, according to Whitelaw Reid of The Daily Progress.
Anderson, Virginia's second-leading scorer, broke a finger in the Cavaliers' first game against Louisville, a 52-47 win on Feb. 6. He has missed the last seven games.
Anderson started each of Virginia's 22 games before he was injured and averaged 13.4 points and 4.3 rebounds per game. He is shooting 48.4 percent on three-point attempts this season.
The Cavaliers are ranked No. 2 in the nation and have only lost one game this season. Only the undefeated Kentucky Wildcats have lost fewer games than the Cavaliers.
Saturday's game is the regular-season finale for UVA. The Cavaliers have already clinched the ACC regular season title and earned a bye to the conference tournament quarterfinals on March 12.
