Missouri softball player Nicole Hudson earns more Big 12 honors

Tuesday, May 10, 2011 | 7:58 p.m. CDT

COLUMBIA — Missouri softball player Nicole Hudson has been named the Big 12 Conference Player of the Week for the second time this season.

Hudson, a sophomore third baseman, hit .692 in four games last week, picking up at least two hits in each contest.

She went 4-for-6 in a doubleheader last Wednesday against Western Illinois, scoring three runs, hitting a double, walking once, driving home a run and picking up a stolen base.

Hudson's offense was also featured last weekend in the Tigers' two-game home series against Texas. Hudson picked up the only two hits off Longhorns' pitcher Blaire Luna in a 2-0 loss Saturday with a single and a double. Then in Sunday's 6-3 victory, Hudson went 3-for-4 at the plate against Luna with a home run and a double and matched her career-best with four RBIs.

Missouri's seven Player/Pitcher of the Week selections tie them with Texas for most among Big 12 teams this season. Hudson was also named Player of the Week on April 19.

Missouri is set to play at 1 p.m. Thursday at Oklahoma State in a makeup of a game postponed on May 1.
