Indiana senior guard Jordan Hulls was awarded the Senior CLASS Award from the NCAA, awarded to a senior who shows excellence in the areas of the classroom, community, character and competition. The release follows.

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – Indiana guard Jordan Hulls, who led the Hoosiers to the Sweet 16 has been selected as the 2012-13 Senior CLASS Award® winner in NCAA® Division I men’s basketball.

The award, chosen by a nationwide vote of Division I men’s basketball coaches, national basketball media and fans, is given annually to the most outstanding senior student-athlete in Division I men’s basketball. To be eligible for the award, a student-athlete must be classified as an NCAA Division I senior and have notable achievements in four areas of excellence – classroom, community, character and competition.

An acronym for Celebrating Loyalty and Achievement for Staying in School®, the Senior CLASS Award focuses on the total student-athlete and encourages students to use their platform in athletics to make a positive impact as leaders in their communities.

“I’m humbled by this honor,” said Hulls. “It was a dream come true to represent Indiana University on the basketball court, and I was so fortunate to have great teammates, coaches and support staff who brought the best out in me every day either in the classroom or on the court.”

During his career, Hulls has been recognized as an Academic All-American and is a three-time Academic All-Big Ten honoree. After completing his bachelor of science in kinesiology in three years, the Bloomington, Ind., native will complete his athletic administration master’s program in August. While in college, Hulls worked to help people become more physically fit. He worked with patients recovering from cardiac issues and also encouraged faculty members in need of beginning a healthy lifestyle.

“Jordan is everything you want a student-athlete to be and more,” said IU Coach Tom Crean. “His impact on our program will last a lifetime and we are thrilled that he is being honored for his outstanding accomplishments on and off the court.”
