Duquesne Basketball

Former Duquesne Big Man Mike Hughes Joins Basketball Club Vienna



Hughes played three years for Keith Dambrot at Duquesne, averaging more than ten points and 6.5 rebounds in each year with the program. This past year, he put up 10.8 points per game as well as 7.8 rebounds per game, which was good enough for fourth-most rebounds per game in the Atlantic 10.
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.

The 6-foot-8 center finished his career at Duquesne as the school’s all-time leader in career field goal percentage, hitting 56.2% of his shots over his three-year Dukes career. He also finished fourth on Duquesne’s all-time blocks list, with 177.

Basketball Club Vienna, commonly known as BC GGMT Vienna, finished last season with a 17-12 record in the Austrian Basketball Superliga.

“I expect a lot from Michael Hughes,” he said. “He will be a very important factor in our team. In the past we had selected extremely good rookie players (note: Anthony Clemons, Jonathan Fairell), who then made a top European career and that I expect the same from Michael Hughes.”
