Indiana completes weekend sweep of Kentucky

  • 06/14/2009 9:30 pm in

After a 78-65 win Saturday evening in Conseco Fieldhouse, the Indiana All-Stars headed south to Louisville looking to complete a sweep of the Kentucky All-Stars at Knights Hall on the campus of Bellarmine University.

And they did just that.

Led again by Errick Peck, who will attend Cornell University, Indiana defeated Kentucky 64-49 . The Hoosier state continues to dominate the interstate series and now leads 82-42 all-time.

Peck finished with a game-high 14 points and Purdue signee D.J. Byrd added 10.

Indiana out-rebounded Kentucky 51-46 and limited Kentucky Mr. Basketball Jon Hood to just eight points in 26 minutes. Hood scored 20 points in Saturday’s game in Indianapolis.

Mr. Basketball Jordan Hulls was just 1 of 9 from the field and finished with four points. But like he normally does, Hulls played a solid floor game and dished out five assists, grabbed five rebounds and had two steals. His future teammate at Indiana, Derek Elston, had four points and eight rebounds.

Audio: Indiana all-star coach David Wood, Hulls, Peck and Stephan Van Treese addressed the media following the sweep of Kentucky. You can listen to the audio from the press conference in the embedded audio player below.

    Hi I am Jordan Hulls……I have not lost a GAME in a very long time. To quote one of my hero's Al Davis…..”Just win baby”

    I hope the kid brings the same attitude to Indiana, we have plenty of scorers, we need winners…….

    I'm happy Indiana won but was expecting to see more production from Hulls and Elston. The assists are nice but 1/9 from the field in the game Sunday and no buckets in Saturday's game on however many attempts doesn't make me feel good about Hulls ability to score. Sure we need him to set people up, but at some point he's going to need to score a little to help get a win. Everybody has hyped these kids since their signing and they did not live up to their hype.

    Agree with Kelin. It's all about the attitude.

    These kids are in and out every 4-5 minutes all game long, barely enough to find flow and rhythm. But you can always rebound, play defense, and find the open man. NOBODY fills it up with the defense Kentucky was playing and running a rotation like this. These kids not only will be fine but will be the keystone of the IU turnaround.

    They did not live up to the hype? Based on a couple all star games? You immediately lost all of your credibility. Relax, it is going to be ok.

    Hulls has not lost a game since July 08' the championship of the vegas aau tourney. It is not that he can't fill it up, he does not need too. The kid is a winner and if he produces at IU what he has produced at South….I will be more than pleased……

    Creek, jones, elston, wateford, dumes, are all scorers…..do we need more?

    Good question.

    Based on the analysis I did earlier this spring the answer is YES , we need more offense, ( maybe not more scorers ). We did not score enough last year to win close games. Keep in mind we have no improved Story or Williams.

    BUT……… our need for offense is alot less than our need for DEFENSE and ball control. We MUST reduce points allowed by 8 – 10 pts per game and TO's by 8-10.

    Increasing pts by only 5 w no change in defense will not win us much. Decreasing pts alowed by 8 to 10 and 10 to's per game, now we have something……….if Hulls can play D and not make to's that is what we need most.

    I am looking at Rivers, Jones , DUmes ,Watford, Pritchard at first with Hulls rotating for Rivers, Creek for Jones/DUmes and Elston/Capo, for Watford/Pritchard

    FYI Jody Demling of the courier is reporting: Indiana top 2010 target Kyrie Irving isn't committed but his father was sporting an IU cap and sweatshirt, according to nbebasketball.com, on Sunday at
    the Rumble in the Bronx.

    Thanks Kelin.Trying to do research on TJ bell.

    I think we get Kyrie Irving and Marguis Teague. But if we dont get Teague's, D Davis will get an offer. I think that is what he is waiting for.
    I think we should pass on Ferguson. The guys head is so big , we would have to buy a case of axle grease just to get his head in the door each night. I dont feel he is a team player. If we lose we lose on a team effort, not cause one player isn't hitting. I see this man going to the team in the south, Playing in Ripoff Arena for Coach Calpone.
    Lets get players that want to be there cause it is Indiana.
