WASHINGTON, D.C. - The Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities (AJCU) in conjunction with the Jesuit Basketball Spotlight (JBS) has named Spring Hill College's Lynleigh Hughes as an honorable mention member of 2010-11 Jesuit Women's Basketball All-Academic Team.
Hughes, a forward from Hammond, La., is a senior majoring in Pre-Health. She averaged 6.3 points and 3.4 rebounds per game this season while handing out 76 assists, taking away 35 steals and blocking six shots.
The All-Jesuit Team represents student-athletes from the 28 Jesuit colleges spread across the United States that play basketball on all three levels of the NCAA and also in the NAIA. They share the mission of Jesuit education, founded nearly 500 years ago under the principles of St. Ignatius Loyola to educate young people to become men and women dedicated to service and compassionate leadership. Students at Jesuit colleges have long excelled in the classroom and in the community, but they also have played a major role in collegiate basketball in the last 100 years.
