PURDUE WOMENS BASKETBALL RECRUITING:
Southfield-Lathrup duo listing Purdue

    Two prospects at a Michigan power program have Purdue on their lists. Southfield-Lathrup's 6'1 senior center Timika Williams and 5'3 junior point guard Jareica Hughes both have elite schools taking hard looks.

    Williams, a physical post player, averaged 12 points, 12 rebounds and three blocks as a junior.

    "Timika has dynamite post moves and is great at finishing," Lathrup head coach Michele Jackson told the Detroit Free Press last year. "Defensively she blocks or alters shots and rebounds well."

    Williams has a list including in-state programs Michigan and Michigan State, plus Purdue,Tennessee, Akron and Old Dominion.

    Another point guard in the Class of 2006 has Purdue taking some looks at her. Joining Evansville's Fahkara Malone on Purdue's watch list as a point prospect in 2006 is Southfield-Lathrup's (MI) Jareica Hughes.

    The 5'3 speedster started for a 21-3 team last season, averaging 15 points, five assists and five steals per game. That performance landed her a spot on the all-state second team as a sophomore.

    Hughes is getting plenty of recruiting attention, and has a list that includes Purdue, Tennessee, Michigan, Michigan State, North Carolina and Xavier.

    Southfield-Lathrup is already being looked at as a top five team in Michigan this season behind the leadership of the junior Hughes and the senior Williams.

    The preseason top five girl's basketball programs in Michigan, according to the Detroit News, are -- 1. Detroit Country Day (20-7), 2. Detroit King (23-0), 3. Lansing Waverly (19-3), 4. Southfield-Lathrup (21-3) and 5. Grand Rapids Christian (21-4). The Michigan girls basketball season tipped off on Monday.
