Helias' Hughes has a perfect night

January 17th, 2012 in News

It was a perfect night for Deion Hughes.

The Helias senior scored 19 points on 8-of-8 shooting, capped an unblemished career against crosstown rival Jefferson City and sank a three-quarter court buzzer beater at the end of the first half. Hughes' superb performance led the Crusaders to a 62-52 victory over the Jays on Tuesday night at Fleming Fieldhouse.

The buzzer beater was the highlight of the night.

"I've never made one of those shots in my life," Hughes said. "I got lucky enough for it to go in. Banked it in, called it."
