LOUISVILLE, Ky. - The Indiana Boys' All-Stars didn't need a monster game from Mr. Basketball Jordan Hulls.
Hulls of Bloomington South scored just four, but had five rebounds, five assists and two steals as Indiana completed a sweep of its rival Kentucky All-Stars 64-49, Sunday at Bellarmine University. Indiana was paced by 14 points by Errick Peck from Indianapolis Cathedral.
"I had great teammates," said Hulls, who has signed with Indiana University. "As long as we come out with the win, that's all that matters."
Indiana trailed only briefly early in the game and led 37-20 at halftime behind Peck's 11 points.
Kentucky, which lost to the Hoosiers Saturday in Indianapolis, 78-65, made only five of 24 shots from the field in the first half for 22.2 percent. For the game, Kentucky wasn't much better, making 17 of 70 for 24.2 percent, including just two of 16 from 3-point range.
Indiana didn't have a great shooting game, making 24 of 68 for 35.2 percent, but outrebounded the smaller Kentucky squad 51-46.
"I was really, really proud of the mind-set of all 13 guys," said Indiana coach David Wood of West Lafayette. "It's human nature to have a let-down. We kept the commitment of going inside to out."
Indiana led 45-27 with 16:45 to play when Kentucky scored five straight points to get within 45-34.
The Hoosiers put the game away, scoring seven straight points for a 52-34 lead. Kentucky could get no closer than 61-49.
Kentucky's Mr. Basketball Jon Hood of Madisonville struggled, scoring eight points with six rebounds. Hood made just two of nine shots from the field. He has signed to play at the University of Kentucky.
Louisville Central's Ridge Wilson, who has signed to play football at Kentucky, led the Bluegrass with 11 points. Aaron Wilson of Fulton City High added eight points and 15 rebounds.
"He (Hood) is really, really good," said Wood. "We had to keep him from getting into the lane and getting to the hole. He didn't get much."
Indiana leads the annual series 82-42 and has won 11 of 12
