The league’s top honor will be presented to Hudson Friday at the OVC’s annual spring meetings at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center in Nashville by Commissioner Jon Steinbrecher. Hudson will not be able to accept the award because he is participating in NBA pre-draft camp in Florida. Although Hudson declared himself eligible for the June 26 NBA Draft, he did not hire an agent so he would be eligible to return to school for his senior season with the Skyhawks. Memphis’ Anderson not going to NBA MEMPHIS (AP) — University of Memphis guard Antonio Anderson has withdrawn from the 2008 NBA Draft and is returning to school for his final season of eligibility. He said in a statement released by the school late last week that he’d been projected as a second-round pick, and he was not satisfied with that. Anderson has 897 career points for the Tigers. This past season, he was the team’s fourth-leading scorer at 8.6 points per game. He tied for the team lead with 49 steals and was second with 136 assists. Anderson also was the most valuable player of the Conference USA Tournament.
