A scary scene unfolded late in the first half of No. 1-seeded Virginia’s first-round contest against Hampton on Thursday when Cavaliers head coach Tony Bennett collapsed on the sideline.

The 46-year-old Bennett leaned over with his hands on his knees before falling over on his side.

Trainers examined Bennett and took him to the locker room. When Bennett returned to the floor to a big cheer, he revealed that he was a bit dehydrated when he went down.
