 UT Martin\'s Hudson, Weddle on All-OVC preseason squad
posted 8 years ago

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Reigning OVC Player of the Year Lester Hudson and reigning OVC Freshman of the Year Marquis Weddle were both named to the 10-member Preseason All-OVC team. Only UT Martin, Morehead State and Tennessee State placed two members on the team, and Hudson and Weddle were two of the three total guards on the team. Hudson, who was also named 2008-09 Preseason Player of the Year, arguably had the greatest single season in the history of the UT Martin basketball program in 2007-08. The 6-2, 190-pound Memphis native finished his first NCAA season ranked in the Top 10 nationally in points per game (25.7 for fourth), steals (2.8 for fourth), and 3-pointers made per game (3.8 for 10th). Hudson also became the first Division I men’s basketball player to record a quadruple-double in a game when he put up a line of 25 points, 12 rebounds, 10 assists and 10 steals in UT Martin’s 116-74 win over Central Baptist on Nov. 13. Hudson also had a triple-double, eight additional double-doubles and cracked the 30-point plateau 12 times during his rookie season in the league. His 124 3-point field goals was an OVC record, topping the previous mark of 120 by Samford’s J. Robert Merritt in 2005-06. Hudson capped off his spectacular season by being named OVC Player of the Year, All-OVC First Team and All-OVC Newcomer. Hudson was named to the CollegeInsider.com All-American team, and was named Associated Press Honorable Mention All-American and a second team All-American by CollegeHoops.net. He is the first ever UTM basketball player to earn All-American status, as well as the first Skyhawk to win OVC Player of the Year honors. Last May, Hudson was named OVC Male Athlete of the Year and entered the NBA Draft but withdrew to return for his senior campaign. Hudson returns having led the OVC last season in four categories and being in the top 10 for eight categories. Hudson enters his senior year with the most points in a single season at UTM with 847 (the previous record holder was Mike Meschede with 664 in 1987-88), and just 153 shy of being the school’s 11th member of the 1,000-point club.
