BATESVILLE — Jordan Hulls, an Indiana commit for the class of 2009, pretty much played his game during the North/South Indiana All-Star Classic on Sunday.

Eighteen points, with four rebounds and five assists, along with one move that left Terre Haute South’s Jake Odum sitting on the court with a sheepish look on his face.

For a Q&A with Hulls, read after the jump.

Q: First all-star game of the season. How do you think it went?

A: There are a lot of good players on the team and that made it a lot better for me, since I just had to throw them the ball and watch them score. Colt Ryan got a little hot there too (Ryan, an Evansville commit, scored a game-high 28 points), so I don’t mind throwing the ball to him. It was a lot of fun, though.

Q: This is not really your style of game. Did you adjust how you play?

A: I think I can play like that. In AAU, I play a lot like this. It’s a lot more serious, there, but I like to run-and-gun and all of that stuff. But I can also do the fundamental type of things. I loved the atmosphere today and playing in these kind of games is always going to be fun.

Q: What is the difference between AAU and an all-star game?

A: As far as throwing it off the backboard and trying to do all of that — you try to win in AAU. Obviously, we tried to win today too, but AAU you’re trying to win and you’re trying to get a championship. It’s a little bit different from that standpoint, but as far as run-and-gun, it’s very similar.

Q: What did you think of Derek (Elston, a fellow Indiana commit who played for the North team)?

A: Derek played pretty well. He played hard. I don’t think he shot as well as he wanted to, but you can’t hit every shot. I thought he played well, though, for a big man down in the middle.

Q: This is the last time you two will be opponents.

A: I hadn’t thought of that, just until you mentioned it. (Hulls and Elston played against each other) once or twice in AAU, but not as many times as you might think. But he’s really gotten a lot better and I can’t wait to play with him.

  1. I have a man crush on Jordan Hulls. He will be the glue to this program for the next 4 years, a la Tom Coverdale.
