#20 Kayla Hudson
Hometown: Gleason, Tenn.

Kayla comes off another great season at point guard. for the second year in a row, she has led us on the floor from the toughest position. She is intelligent and it is like having a coach on the floor at all times. She is one of the best three point shooters in the country and one of the best to ever put on a Union jersey. We will see her be more aggressive with the ball in her hands this year. This is another player that is one of the most competitive players I have coached. I want the ball in her hands when it counts.
