This summer OleMissSports.com will run a summer series in which we introduce the new faces around the Ole Miss women's basketball team. We open up this summer series with new assistant coach Brittany Hudson

Assistant Coach Brittany Hudson enters her first season with the Rebels after spending the past two years on staff at Mississippi State. Hudson is widely regarded as an up-and-comer in the coaching ranks and is a dynamic recruiter. Hudson most recently helped the Bulldogs to a top 100 recruiting class, including signing Mississippi girl's basketball all-time scoring leader Victoria Vivians. During her time at MSU, Hudson helped the Bulldogs to a postseason appearance in 2014, its first since a run to the NCAA Sweet 16 in 2009-10

OleMissSports.com:  What makes Ole Miss women's basketball special?
Hudson:  Ole Miss women's basketball is special because the support that is provided not only from the administration, but also from the fans.  It is also special because it is a great environment and the coaches and players have also made this a great place.  They have all welcomed me and it has been a great atmosphere since I have arrived on campus.  

OleMissSports.com: What are you looking forward to during the upcoming season?
Hudson: I am looking forward to a great season!  The players have been working extremely hard this offseason.  I am also looking forward to being a part of such an exciting program and environment. 

OleMissSports.com: Favorite place to eat in Oxford?
Hudson:  My favorite place to eat is McEwen's and I am very excited about the Wingstop that is opening up! 

OleMissSports.com: If you could pick your all-time Starting Five composed of WNBA/NBA players who would it be and why?
Hudson: My starting five would be Isaiah Thomas, Reggie Miller, Michael Jordan, Tim Duncan and David Robinson. I would pick these five because this is a very tough group of players.  They give their all night in and night out.  Now, if I could name an all-time starting five for the WNBA separately it would be Dawn Staley, Sheryl Swoopes, Cynthia Cooper, Cheryl Miller and Lisa Leslie.   This group is also the toughest group of players that have paved a way for us to have a WNBA today.  Without them there wouldn't be a WNBA or women's basketball scholarships! 

OleMIssSports.com: What is your best or earliest basketball memory?
Hudson:  My best basketball memory is one that got me into playing basketball, and that was always being challenged by my older sister.  She beat me many, many times; until I grew about a foot taller than her and she no longer beat me anymore.  There is nothing like being able to beat the one player you always thought was better than you!

OleMissSports.com: What is your most embarrassing basketball moment?
Hudson:
My most embarrassing moment in basketball would be when I would get my shot blocked.  That to me was always something that I could have prevented so it was embarrassing to me.  Which by the way, did not happen very often!

OleMissSports.com: What are the most important qualities in a collegiate basketball player?
Hudson: Toughness, honesty, hard work, discipline and attitude will get you a long way within this sport, and those are definitely winning tools! 

OleMissSports.com: Who is your coaching role model?
Hudson: My coaching role models would be Pat Summitt and also Van Chancellor.
