Kaila Hulls to Join Indiana Women's Basketball Team
April 30, 2012
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Indiana head women's basketball coach Curt Miller announced the addition of Kaila Hulls to the IU women's basketball program on Monday. Hulls, a former Indiana high school basketball all-star and graduate of Bloomington South, will transfer to Indiana from Bowling Green State University and will begin classes this summer.
Hulls was a McDonald's All-American candidate after averaging a double-double with 20 points and 11.7 rebounds per game during her senior campaign for the Panthers. Hulls ended her career at South ranked second all-time in career scoring, second all-time in career rebounds and is the school's all-time leader in steals.
She was a four-time all-conference selection and was named all-area in each of her four years. Hulls also garnered first team all-state recognition from Hoosier Basketball Magazine and helped lead the Panthers to two conference titles and two sectional championships while compiling an overall record of 67-17 (.798) in her four seasons.
"We are excited about Kaila's decision to return home and become a member of the Indiana Hoosier family," Miller said. "She is an outstanding player but more importantly an amazing person that will represent the University on and off the court. Kaila will be an outstanding building block for the next chapter of IU women's basketball. She is a tireless worker, a fierce competitor and has great 3-point shooting ability. She is also a former Indiana All-Star, showing our continued commitment to recruit the best in the state of Indiana."
After winning the 3-point shooting contest in Bowling Green's midnight madness last fall, Hulls was forced to sit out her entire freshman season at BGSU due to an ACL injury. She is the daughter of J.C. and Joni Hulls and is the younger sister of Indiana men's basketball guard Jordan Hulls, who just completed his junior season. Her grandfather, John, also has IU ties as he was a member of Bob Knight's coaching staff in the early 1970s.
