Bloomington, Indiana – Indiana University men’s basketball players Jordan Hulls and Victor Oladipo will join eight other Division I college basketball players on a trip to the Far East with Reach USA from May 17-31.
“I think it is a great honor to represent Indiana University in something like this,” said Hulls, who averaged 11.0 points and 2.9 assists as a sophomore. “I’m really looking forward to the experience.”
The group, coached by retired Oldham Co. (Kentucky) High School coach Gary Forrest, will be involved with a cultural exchange trip throughout the area. The team will play a club team from Lithuania, seven times, and an all-star squad from Brazil, twice. Daily updates can be found on www.sportsreach.org.
Other members of the group include former Hoosier Malik Story (Nevada), Justin Bocot (Southern Illinois), Austin Hollins (Minnesota), Garlon Green (TCU), Marcus Thornton (Georgia), Keith Clanton (Central Florida), Devonte Elliott (Nevada) and Eloy Vargas (Kentucky).
“This is a once in a lifetime opportunity,” said Oladipo, who averaged 7.4 points and 3.7 rebounds during his freshmen season. “I’m very humbled and honored to have the chance to play basketball and experience a trip like this at the same time.”
