BLOOMINGTON – Senior guard Jordan Hulls reached double figures in scoring for the fifth straight game in Indiana's 101-53 victory Sunday against Ball State.
Hulls scored 17 points. He went 3 of 6 from three-point territory.
"I'm just trying to be more aggressive and do whatever the team needs me to do," Hulls said. "I was just waiting to get into the flow."
Hulls has at least three three-pointers in all six of Indiana's games this year.
"I put a lot of time in my shooting. I'd like to shoot the ball every game well, but my teammates were finding me, just drive and kicks, that kind of thing and I was able to create on my own and it feels good. When I put in all that time and work it should feel good anyways."
Numbers add up
Indiana had 43 bench points, compared with Ball Stat's eight. The 43 points were the most for IU's bench since scoring 47 against Howard on Dec. 19, 2011.
Indiana had a season-high 40 points in the paint and had 21 points off of turnovers.
"They just have such a deep team, and they have so many guys that can hurt you," Ball State coach Billy Taylor said. "(Cody) Zeller is a tough cover, and he draws fouls on your bigs. Even though he picked up two fouls early, they just have so many guys with weapons that can hurt you."
Getting to 100
One of the loudest cheers from the crowd came when Austin Etherington made a layup with 20 seconds to go to get IU to 100 points.
The Hoosiers have a fan promotion with Qdoba if the team reaches 100 points.
"(Etherington is) probably at Qdoba right now," Indiana forward Will Sheehey joked.
