HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Lekera Hughes is taking her game to the next level. The Oak Grove guard signed Thursday to continue her hoops career at Jones County Junior College.
The Lady Bobcats are one of the top junior college programs in the nation. The allure of playing close to home was strong for Hughes.
"Well first it was close to home," Hughes said. "I can go home, get my stuff washed and go eat. Second, coach (Missy) Bilderback, she has a great program. I love the energy and the campus. I know a lot of people there."
