Crystal Hudson, a junior middle blocker from Alabama, has been named the Sports Imports/AVCA Division I National Player of the Week.  Hudson led her team to home wins this past week over Kentucky and then-eighteenth-ranked Tennessee.  Hudson, in a sweep of the Wildcats, tallied 14 kills, hitting an outstanding .824 with no errors in 17 attempts; she also added three blocks. The Crimson Tide junior also came through in the upset over Tennessee, where she put away 22 kills with a hitting percentage of .444 and two blocks. Hudson averaged 5.14 kills per game for the week, hitting a very impressive .566. Crystal Hudson is the third Alabama player to receive the Sports Imports/AVCA National Player of the Week award, and the first since 1998.  The Crimson Tide head coach is Judy Green.
