And today, in shocking sporting news, Dez Wells gets called a rapist. Bob Huggins, the head coach of the West Virginia Mountaineers men’s basketball team, had is daughters in Columbus last night to see West Virginia defeat Maryland and advance to the Sweet 16.
Things turned ugly fairly quickly throughout the game as the Huggins daughters started calling out Dez Wells, Terrapins forward, a rapist.
In a tweet that has since been deleted, Jenna Leigh Huggins, who is listed as a program assistant in the Mountaineers athletic department’s business office, tweeted the following:
According to the Baltimore Sun:
Terps senior guard Dez Wells was expelled from Xavier after his freshman season for what he has said was a false rape allegation. Wells filed a lawsuit in 2013 alleging that Xavier and its president had ignored evidence in its investigation into his case and had tarnished his reputation; the two sides settled out of court in April.
