Honors keep coming for UTM’s Hudson UT Martin’s Lester Hudson was named to the All-Senior All-American second team, in balloting for the Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award. NCAA Division I coaches, national media and fan balloting determined the winners. Hudson, who was one of 10 finalists for the award, took in the Final Four from Ford Field in a weekend of fan interaction and community service. Hudson was a part of a group that included Rhode Island’s Jimmy Baron and Belmont’s Andy Wicke, two other finalists for the award. North Carolina’s Tyler Hansbrough won the award. The award was inspired by the story of former Duke star Shane Battier, who could have been an NBA lottery pick but returned to college for his senior season and led the Blue Devils to the NCAA national championship in 2001.
