Skyhawk guards among nation’s top scoring tandems
Only two other duos in Division I college basketball currently score more total points than UT Martin guards Lester Hudson (25.8) and Marquis Weddle (16.4).
The Skyhawk duo combines for 42.2 points per game, which trails only a duo from Niagara and another pair at VMI.
In two games this past week, Hudson and Weddle worked their magic complementing each other and helping the Skyhawks add to their five-game winning streak.
Hudson, a 6-3, junior from Memphis, struggled against host Tennessee Tech with just nine points. Weddle, a 6-1, freshman from Union City, picked up the slack by pouring in 29 points.
Against visiting Southeast Missouri State, Saturday night in the Kathleen and Tom Elam Center, Weddle was held scoreless in the first 20 minutes of play. In the second half, Weddle scored 14 points. Meanwhile, Hudson recorded a triple-double in the game with 26 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists.
The tandem of Hudson and Weddle has combined for 207 points in the past five games. Hudson has scored 115 points, including a career-high 38 against Tennessee State. Weddle has scored 92 points. Together the tandem averaged 41.4 points over the last five games.
