Apple doesn’t fall from the tree…

The Hughes family tree has a well known basketball heritage.

Allison’s dad (Doug) is the current Parkway boys basketball coach Doug Hughes, her mom, Lynn (Bihn), was one of the top girls players to ever come out of Mercer County and her brother Dylan, who graduated last year, led the Panthers to a Final 8 State appearance before the tournament was stopped due to COVID 19 in 2020.
