Scorebook Live’s Dan Dickau recently had a chance to connect with Liam Lloyd, a junior sharpshooter for Gonzaga Prep in Spokane. Lloyd has been a nice outside presence to coach Matty McIntyre’s Bullpup squad that is looking to repeat as Washington boys basketball 4A state champions. Lloyd, a 6-5 guard, is averaging 12.9 points per game for the 18-2 Bullpups. He is the son of longtime Gonzaga Bulldogs assistant coach Tommy Lloyd.
