Trevon Hughes Joins 1,000 Point Club


As has often been the case lately for Wisconsin, though, senior guard Trevon Hughes was the star of the show as the Badgers cruised to a 48-point victory.
Hughes, a 6-foot native of Queens, N.Y., scored 20 points while pulling down six rebounds, dishing out three assists and grabbing four steals. The co-captain shot 7-of-10 from the floor on the night, including a perfect 6-for-6 in the first half and 4-of-5 from beyond the arc on the night.
With just 5 1/2 minutes into the game, Hughes added to his list of accomplishments this season when he hit a jumper to put the Badgers up 15-4.
Though he thought it should have been a three, the long 2-point basket gave him nine points on the night, and 1,000 in his career a Badger. Hughes became the 34th player in school history to reach the 1,000-point mark and the first since Marcus Landry in 2008-09.
“It was like a big weight off my shoulders,” Hughes said. “Obviously, I came out tonight and I couldn’t miss the in the first half, the only thing that slowed me down was halftime. We had a joke about it at lunch today — me, Keaton (Nankivil) and J-Bo (Jason Bohannon) — because they reminded me that I was just nine points away.
It looks like the Badgers have rebounded from their loss to UW-GB up in the north woods. I was thinking about getting some Wisconsin Basketball tickets to an upcoming home game. Madison is always a blast. GO BUCKY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
