Leeds native Chris Hughes had a career game on Monday night finishing 2 assists short of a triple double in Amelia Academy’s 67-36 win over Brunswick Academy.
Speaking exclusively to Hoopsfix, the 6’2, 190lbs guard said
”The team we were playing weren’t great, and at the half I had 13 points and 9 rebounds so I thought i’ll try go for a double double because I hadn’t had one ever before. Then (my teammate) Kirril got real hot from three and gave like 6 or 7 assists, but I just missed a triple double. I was just happy to get a win after a rough couple games the week before.”
Amelia Academy now stands at .500 with a 7-7 record but Hughes is confident about the remainder of the season
”There is some good teams and good players in our conference but I think around the conference tournament time we should be able to compete for a championship”.
Chris Hughes and Amelia Academy will next be in action tonight at Richmond Christian.
