OKLAHOMA CITY, Ok. - Former Mizzou softball players Nicole Hudson and Rhea Taylor, along with the rest of the USA Softball Women's National Team, will take on some of the best in the world at the General Tire World Cup of Softball from July 11-14. Mizzou fans will have several chances to catch the Tiger duo on the ESPN family of networks.

ESPN is the exclusive domestic home of the General Tire World Cup of Softball and will feature over 14 hours of live coverage including the championship game on Sunday, July 14 at 8 p.m. (CT).

Hudson finished her Mizzou career ranking in the school's all-time Top 10 in hits, doubles, home runs, at-bats, runs scored, RBI and walks. Hudson sits No. 1 atop the Tigers' all-time walks chart with 143. She finished just one home run shy of matching the school's career home run record of 47. She earned Second Team All-Southeast Region recognition after batting .308 with 16 home runs, 45 RBI and a .692 slugging percentage.

A three-time member of Team USA (2011, 12, 13) Taylor was a three-time All-American for Mizzou in 2008, 2010 and 2011. She was a part of two World Cup Championship performances (2011, 12) for Team USA, also helping the team to a silver medal at the International Softball Federation (ISF) Women's World Championships last year. Taylor helped the squad to a first-place performance at the Pan American Games in 2011.
