Brescia head men's basketball coach Josh Gibson announced the signing of former Breckinridge County (KY) star Kody Hughes on Wednesday. Following in his father and Brescia Alum Bill's footsteps, Kody is set to dawn the Blue and Gold of the Bearcats next season.
Hughes is a dynamic player who Gibson hopes can make an immediate impact for the Bearcats next season. "Kody is going to be a tremendous asset to our program," said Gibson. "He is obviously a good shooter and a natural scorer, but he can rebound and distribute the ball effectively as well. He also has tremendous quickness and an extra gear that most players don't possess."
Kody had a well rounded high school career at Breck County as he He was 1st team All-Messenger, All-Region tournament team 2011, 2012, 2013. He was All-District in 2011,2012, 2013 as well. He leaves Breck County as the overall 3rd place all time scorer and member of the 1000 point club. His senior season was very solid averaging 20 points, 5.5 rebound, 2 assists, and 2 steals per game.
Gibson adds, "We are excited to welcome him into the Bearcat family, and I am looking forward to watching him develop over the next four years."
