This, too, has made the rounds, I believe, but Indiana seniors Jordan Hulls and Aulani Sinclair will compete in the College 3-Point Championship on Thursday at Georgia Tech in Atlanta in one of the events leading up to the Final Four. The release from IU follows.

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – Indiana seniors Jordan Hulls and Aulani Sinclair are set to compete in the 2013 State Farm College 3-Point Championship on Thursday, April 4, at McCamish Pavilion on the campus of the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) in Atlanta.

Sinclair (Eminence, Ind.) is the first Indiana Women’s Basketball player to participate in the event, while Hulls (Bloomington, Ind.) is the fourth Indiana Men’s Basketball player (Calbert Cheaney, 1993; Brian Evans, 1996; A.J. Guyton, 2000; Tom Coverdale, 2003) to take part in the annual competition.

The ESPN broadcast team will include Brad Nessler, Dan Dakich, Jimmy Dykes and Samantha Ponder as this year marks the 25th annual State Farm College Slam Dunk and 3-Point Championships.

Hulls, one of the most prolific 3-point shooters in Indiana history, ranked among the top three in 3-point field percentage in the Big Ten this season, shooting 44.4 percent from beyond the arc. He has played in more games than any other player in program history (135). Hulls owns a career 44.1 shooting percentage from 3, ranking among the top four among graduating seniors nationally. Over the last two seasons, he helped lead the Hoosiers to back-to-back NCAA Sweet Sixteen’s for the first time since 1994. Hulls averaged 9.7 points, 3.0 assists and 2.3 rebounds per game during his senior campaign. On Nov. 15, Hulls became the 44th member of the 1,000 Point Club at Indiana and ended his career with 1,318 points, ranking 26th all-time on IU’s career scoring list.

Sinclair wrapped her Hoosier career as the school’s all-time leader in 3-point field goal percentage as she shot 37.3 percent from long distance for her career. During her senior campaign, she set a program record for most 3-point field goals made in a single season with 72. She also sits third all-time at Indiana for career 3-point makes with 183. Sinclair led the Hoosiers in scoring in 2012-13 with 15.5 points per game and earned Honorable Mention All-Big Ten recognition. She also became the 23rd player in program history to tally 1,000 career points and sits 18th on Indiana’s all-time career scoring list with 1,142 points.
