UT-Martin’s Lester Hudson Scores 38 In China

Former University of Tennessee-Martin star Lester Hudson poured in 38 points to lead the Liaoning Leopards past the Tianjin Lions 115-104 in the Chinese Basketball Association.

 

The 6-3 guard made 7 threes, while shooting a torrid 78 percent (7-of-9) from two-point range and 54 percent (7-of-13) from behind the arc.

 

Hudson also had 5 assists and a whopping 4 steals in the game.

 

Brandon Bass (LSU, NBA) added 23 points and 10 rebounds for Liaoning in the win.

 

For Tianjin, Elijah Holman (Detroit Mercy) had 28 points, 13 rebounds and 4 blocks, while Eugene Jeter (Portland) added 24 points in the loss.

 

But the star of the game was Hudson, who is averaging 29 points, 4 assists, and 2.3 steals this season.

 

He was also in China last season, averaging 31.7 points for Liaoning.

 

Hudson, the CBA MVP in 2014-15, averaged 31.2 points, 7.7 rebounds and 6.9 assists to guide the Leopards to the CBA Finals that year. Liaoning lost to Stephon Marbury’s Beijing Ducks 4 games to 2 in the championship series.

 

He finished that season with the Los Angeles Clippers, signing with the team after the CBA Finals.

 

Hudson was offered a $1 million non-guaranteed contract to remain with the Clippers, but turned them down to take a $2 million deal with Liaoning.

 

A second round pick by Boston (58th overall) in the 2009 draft, Hudson has averaged 4.7 points, 1.2 assists, and 1.4 rebounds in parts of four NBA seasons with the Celtics, Grizzlies, Wizards, Cavs, and Clippers.

 

A college star at University of Tennessee-Martin, Hudson was a two-time Ohio Valley Conference Player of the Year and recorded the only quadruple-double in NCAA history (25 points, 12 rebounds, 10 assists and 10 steals against Central Baptist College).
