Sinclair finishes with 10 points and nine rebounds in 14 minutes and the seniors dominate, winning it 118-63.
NEW ALBANY — Through one half here, Indiana-bound forward Aulani Sinclair has five points and six rebounds as the Seniors lead the Juniors 46-29.
In related news, Tracy Smith needs to add you to his team if you’ve ever played played baseball. Or seen baseball. Or know of baseball. That guy will be scouring the country for available players.
Then again, if you meet those criteria you, too, have probably been drafted. In round 94.
Jake Dunning, an infielder/pitcher, and Joey O’Gara, a tall right-handed pitcher, seem more likely to return to the program than the other five players selected.
Here’s a release from Matt Brady:
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Redshirt sophomore Joey O’Gara and junior Jake Dunning were selected on day three of the Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft. Those two selections brought IU’s total to seven draftees in the three-day event, a record for the Hoosiers. O’Gara was chosen by the Florida Marlins in the 31st round (938th overall), while Dunning went to the San Francisco Giants in the 33rd round (987th overall).
Indiana previously had six players chosen in the 1996 draft after winning the Big Ten Tournament and advancing to the NCAAs. O’Gara and Dunning join Eric Arnett (1st round), Josh Phegley (Supplemental 1st round), Matt Bashore (Supplemental 1st round), Evan Crawford (9th round) and Kipp Schutz (19th round) as Hoosiers drafted this year.
One of the more oft-repeated phrases used to describe Jordan Hulls is winner.
For at least once, the hyperbole is correct.
The former Bloomington South guard, who will play for Indiana next season, has not lost an organized basketball game since July 2008.
That’s a streak of some 30 games, including all 26 games South won during the 2008-09 season and four all-star games.
“It’s been a while,” Hulls said. “Hopefully, you guys don’t jinx me and we lose.”
The last loss came with South, but during the Adidas Super64 Tournament in Las Vegas. An AAU event, South was the only high school team in the field.
Hulls will put that winning streak on the line again tonight in New Albany, when he leads the Indiana All-Stars against the Junior All-Stars. Game time is 8 p.m., with tickets available at the door.

Ralph Willard, a sturdy branch on the same coaching tree that produced Tom Crean, has decided to leave his job as the head coach at Holy Cross to become an assistant under Rick Pitino at Louisville.
Here’s an interesting blog post from Willard about why he chose to leave.
From IU Media Relations (specifically the keyboard of baseball contact Matt Brady):
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – Outfielders Evan Crawford and Kipp Schutz of the Indiana baseball team were selected on day two of the Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft. Crawford was chosen in the ninth round by the San Francisco Giants (267th overall), while Schutz went to the Baltimore Oriolesin the 19th round (566th overall).
Left-handed pitcher Matt Bashore goes 46th to the Minnesota Twins.
Catcher Josh Phegley has been selected with the No. 38 pick by the Chicago White Sox. That’s a compensation pick.
The Milwaukee Brewers have selected right-handed pitcher Eric Arnett with the 26th pick. He’s the first Indiana player taken in the first round of the MLB draft since Jim DeNeff in 1966.
Harold Reynolds, best known for playing second base for the Seattle Mariners in the 1980s and his work with ESPN, said during the MLB Network broadcast of the draft that he felt Arnett was the second-best pitcher available based on film he had watched.
Many mock drafts had predicted Cleveland would draft Eric Arnett with the 15th pick. The Indians went with Alex White, another right-handed pitcher, from the North Carolina Tar Heels instead. He seems to be a similar prospect to Arnett, as he is 6-4 and throws mid-nineties fastball and a hard slider. He’s more of a known commodity, though: he was considered the 71st most talented prospect in the draft coming out of high school.
Arnett and Phegley will be attending parties at restaurants in their home towns (Pataskala, Ohio and Terre Haute, respectively), while Bashore will gather with family in Tipp City, Ohio.
The first three rounds of the Major League First-Year Player Draft begin at 6 p.m. tonight. The remaining 47 rounds will take place Wednesday and Thursday.
To follow along, go here.
To hear what Arnett (a probable first-round pick), Bashore and Phegley (both of whom have a good chance of being picked tonight) have to say about their new teams, come back here later tonight or Wednesday morning.
