Virginia head coach Tony Bennett collapses on sideline

While many are enjoying day one of the 2016 NCAA Tournament, those watching the first-round matchup between No. 1 Virginia and No. 16 Hampton witnessed what could have been a scary moment on the sideline during the game’s first half.

After clutching his leg, Virginia head coach Tony Bennett fell to the court during a break in play. He was given water and slowly walked to the bench before leaving for the locker room before the end of the first half.

According to the TruTV broadcast, Bennett claims to have just been a bit dehydrated. He has since returned to the sideline for the Cavaliers as they look to close out their opening-round game against Hampton.

As of writing, Virginia leads Hampton 42-21 early in the second half.
