DFW Marchfest-April 12: Detractors of summer basketball often point to the focus on individuality and selfishness, especially at the offensive end, as to a reason to dislike the amount of games and the fanfare that go into the summer circuit. They should all go see Hughes, a Texas Tech commit, play. She is the kind of prospect who gives energy on both sides of the ball, focusing on trying to help her team win instead of looking at her own individual stat line. Hughes' impact was felt on offense as she pushed the ball in transition and helped her team score easy baskets, but it was her defense that left an impression. The 5-8 prospect managed to get her hands in the passing lanes and pressure opposing ball handlers with a lot of success. Hughes is a stellar athlete who is also a joy to watch play the game.

Summary: A good athlete at guard and can shoot it. Adequate size for shooting guard position. Needs to refine ball skills but for a late starter she's coming along quickly. -- Aug. 2011
