Player of the Week: Matt Hughes

Matt Hughes has been awarded EABL Player of the Week, as the Itchen College forward led his team with a Week 4 performance of 26 points, six rebounds and a block.

The 6’5″ forward’s efforts were a big part of Itchen grabbing a vital home win over Canterbury High School, in a contest that came right down to the wire.

Hughes said this after hearing the news, “It’s obviously a great honour to receive this award. Last week was a real team effort against Canterbury, with different guys making contributions and ultimately we stuck together well to come away with a win. We need to ride this momentum now and hopefully that will translate into more wins as the season goes on.”

Itchen Head Coach Matt Guymon added, “Matt has worked hard this off-season to develop his perimeter game & I am pleased to see that his efforts are beginning to pay off. Against Canterbury he was able to provide us with a number of scores in critical moments that helped get us over the line.”
