Ahead of the Horsham Hornets Country Basketball League campaigns which began on November 28 for the men and November 27 for the women, The Wimmera Mail-Times did a series of Q&As with the players. In our next men's Q&A get to know a bit about Hugh Dougherty.
What is your favourite movie of all time?
Batman, The Dark Knight. I'm a big Heath Ledger fan.
Are you looking forward to the new Batman film coming out in 2022?
Yeah I really am, I hope it's good.
Are you binging anything on Netflix or any other streaming services at the moment?
Not at the moment. I'm trying to find a new one to binge, but can't find anything.
Who is your favourite basketballer of all time?
Steph Curry, because of his shooting. He changed the game.
Who is your favourite Horsham Hornet of all time?
It's hard to go past Matty Lovel. He knows his stuff and is really good on the court.
Who's better, LeBron James or Michael Jordan?
LeBron. It's a heavily debated question but I think LeBron.
What do you love about playing basketball?
Just getting to have fun with my mates and I enjoy putting in the hard work and getting better at it. It's something I've done over the years, gotten better at it and it's got me to this point, so I'm happy to be here and happy to hopefully get better.
What's your best basketball attribute?
I feel like my leadership. When I'm out on the court I can lead. I'm a good leader and communicator and I'm happy to talk to the boys and get around them.
What is your go to comfort food or guilty pleasure?
Pizza. It's a bit controversial but Hawaiian is my favourite.
Who is your funniest teammate?
Probably Mitch Amos, one of the young lads. He's just funny. He doesn't even try to be funny, he's just one of those people that always makes you laugh even though he's not trying to.
Who would win in a fight, a crab or a rat?
I think a crab. A Crab's got more weapons to utilise.
