JACKSON, Tenn. - 8/24/2004 - Meridith Richardson has decided to play her college basketball for the Lady Bulldogs of Union University. Richardson, a native of Bradford, Tennessee, originally chose Belmont University in Nashville early during her senior year at Bradford. After a change of mind, she will enroll in Union this week and will be a freshman when classes start on Sept. 1.
Richardson, a 5-foot-9 guard, was named Miss Basketball in Tennessee in each of the past two seasons. She averaged 24 points per game over her final two seasons. Richardson was a freshman on the Bradford team that won the state title in 2000. She was one of Union’s top recruits during her high school career before she inked with Belmont in November of 2003.
With the signing of Richardson, Union University maintains their streak of Miss Basketball performers, all from Bradford, dating back to the 1993-94 season. The list of players prior to Richardson’s addition include Michelle Street (1993-1997), Tonya Tuggles (1998-2002), and Jessica Henson (2000-2004).
