Bob Huggins’ daughters Jenna and Jacque call Dez Wells a ‘rapist’
Maryland senior Dez Wells is used to being heckled about his checkered past during games. In 2012, Wells was kicked out of Xavier University after a fellow student accused him of rape. He claimed he was wrongly accused and later reached a settlement with Xavier after a federal judge ruled that the school used Wells as a scapegoat.
West Virginia coach Bob Huggins’ daughters, Jacque and Jenna, don’t seem to care about the judge’s ruling. During the Mountaineers 69-59 win over Maryland on Monday, they reportedly yelled some stuff at Wells from the crowd and later called him a “rapist.”
Bob Huggins' daughters are yelling at Dez Wells from the crowd at every chance (you can look up what they tweeted; I'm not getting involved)

It may be hard to believe, but these are not young girls. The Baltimore Sun notes that Jenna is listed as a program assistant in the Mountaineers business athletic department. She’s in her early 30s and Jacque is about three years younger.
If Huggins’ daughters are trying to show support for their father’s team, they could probably use some advice from this college football family. Regardless of how they feel about Wells and his 2012 incident, Huggins doesn’t need to be answering questions about his daughters’ vulgar tweets while he is trying to prepare West Virginia to take on the nation’s best team in the Sweet 16.
