Duquesne Center Mike Hughes To Pursue Pro Basketball Career



On Friday morning Duquesne senior Mike Hughes announced that he would be pursuing professional opportunities via Twitter.

After playing his freshman year at Akron, Hughes went on to play for the Dukes for three years. Hughes recently finished up a productive senior year, averaging 10.8 points per game to go along with 7.9 rebounds. In his Duquesne career, he finished with 828 points, 177 blocks, and 534 rebounds.

Hughes’ best game of this season came against Richmond, where he dropped 20 points on nine-for-16 shooting while grabbing nine rebounds.

As a Duke, Hughes was one of the most consistent producers for Keith Dambrot, as he averaged at least ten points and 6.5 rebounds per game in all three seasons on the Bluff. As his career went on, he became a very skilled shot blocker and defender while also continuing to contribute on the glass and the score sheet.
