Florida guard Jalen Hudson had himself a week. On Monday, the Southeastern Conference rewarded the junior guard with SEC co-Player of the Week honors.
Hudson averaged 19 points in Florida’s two SEC games, including 21 in the Gators 88-73 victory over Arkansas. Hudson also made one of the biggest plays of Florida’s season when he blocked Kentucky’s PJ Washington on a last second shot attempt.
Hudson is a 6-6 guard from Richmond, Virginia.
