Kaila Hulls out for season

3 comments by   |   Monday, August 27, 2012 - 3:26 pm EDT

The Indiana women’s basketball team has been waiting for the NCAA to rule on Kaila Hulls’ appeal for immediate eligibility. Now, regardless of that decision, the Hoosiers will have to wait to see Hulls in uniform.

Just 10 months removed from tearing the ACL in her right knee while at Bowling Green, Hulls tore the same ACL again and will miss the 2012-13 season, IU announced Monday.

“It is devastating to hear the diagnosis of another ACL injury for Kaila,” said Indiana Curt Miller, her former coach at Bowling Green as well. “She has worked relentlessly on getting back from her prior injury and has done everything asked of her by the doctors and training staff. She will attack her latest injury like a champion, and we look forward to having her on the court during the 2013-14 season.”

Hulls, the younger sister of IU men’s senior guard Jordan Hulls, has yet to play a game in her college career due to the injuries. She averaged 20 points and 11.7 rebounds per game as a senior at Bloomington South and was named a 2011 Indiana All-Star.

This is devestating news, Kaila although not yet eligble to play this year would have been a definate asset to our team if the NCAA would have approved of her eligability this year. My hopes and prayers are with Kaila and her upcoming rehab. If anyone can come back from this unfortunate injury, it is her. Hope to see her in uniform helping IU to many wins in the future!

I hope she makes a full recovery & avoids arthritis in the future.

This is really a bad deal for Kaila, but I’ll bet she bounces back just fine. It’s in her genes.
