Virginia coach Tony Bennett fell on the sideline during the Cavaliers’ NCAA tournament game against Hampton on Thursday.

Bennett was standing on the sideline late in the first half when he dropped to the floor because of what was later reported to be dehydration. He walked back to his seat on the bench and sat down before walking off the court shortly before the end of the half. He returned to the bench to start the second half.

Bennett can be seen falling to the ground after appearing to hold on to his left knee.

​Following his fall, Bennett said on TruTV, “I think I was crouched down and was a little dehydrated and blacked out a little bit, but I’m OK.”

Virginia led Hampton 40–21 at the half and went on to an 81-45 win.
