Loveday Calls Out Huggins

Isaiah Cottrell, the current Huntington Prep and future West Virginia Mountaineers basketball player, was hanging out in his hotel room following a win and was on Instagram Live talking to his friends and fans.

Zach Loveday, his teammate on Huntington Prep and future Baylor Bear, was also in the room.  Several fans said that Loveday should come to Morgantown to play for the Mountaineers, but Loveday seemed less than enthusiastic about playing for West Virginia University.

“Play for that fat old man who sits on a stool and yells at players?  I don’t think so.”

Loveday, a 7’0 4 star center out of Gallipolis, Ohio, received offers from several big-time programs, including Florida, Ohio State, Louisville, Indiana, Michigan, etc., but did not receive an offer or any real consideration from West Virginia Head Coach Bob Huggins.

Loveday signed with Baylor last November and will play for the Bears next season.
