MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – Following a 87-68 victory over Elon on Thursday, WVU head coach Bob Huggins got on the post-game radio show and took a shot at former WVU big Oscar Tshiebwe.
“We lost an alleged McDonald’s All-American because he didn’t like the fact that we were making him do things that were hard. So, we’re fine,” Huggins said.
Huggins brought this up after talking about how all 14 guys on the team want to play.
“You’re going to have a little bit of unrest because they want to play. I understand that, I also understand, too,” Huggins said. “They’re going to earn their stripes, so to speak. If they don’t like it, go ahead and transfer.”
Huggins then kept going about his comment, which led to the comment about Tshiebwe.
So far, Tshiebwe is looking like a consensus All-American at Kentucky early-on. The former Mountaineer is averaging 18.3 points and 18.3 rebounds through three games for John Calipari and the Wildcats.
