Earlier in March, Hunter’s father went on a tirade about West Virginia head coach Bob Huggins. Hunter played sparingly over the 2017-2018 season, only averaging 1.5 points per game. He did not travel with the Mountaineers during the first two rounds of the NCAA Tournament.
The Mountaineers will take on the Villanova Wildcats in the third round of the tournament. The Wildcats are one of two 1 seeds remaining in the tournament. The Mountaineers beat the Murray State Racers 85-68 in the first round of the tournament and the Marshall Thundering Herd 94-71.
