JACKSON, Tenn. - 6/4/2010 - Union (Tenn.) University’s all-time leading scorer Kaitlin Dudley will have her jersey displayed in the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame in Knoxville, Tenn. Dudley’s jersey will hang in the Ring of Honor in the Hall of Fame for the 2010-11 season. Dudley recently helped Union win their second straight NAIA National title and fourth title in six years.
“The Ring of Honor is one of our favorite displays at the Hall of Fame and has become one of our most popular exhibits,” says Karen Tucker, Director of Basketball Operations for the Hall of Fame. “Without a doubt, Kaitin (Dudley) is definitely a part of an elite group, and a part of history now too!”
Union head coach Mark Campbell says, “What a great way for Kaitlin to be remembered and Union to be represented. Kaitlin has represented Union is such a great way over her four years and this just finishes off one of the greatest careers in Lady Bulldog basketball history. We will miss one of the most mentally tough players I will ever coach.”
