George Hill

San Antonio Bound!

Spurs' Popovich promises that Hill will make the Spurs better next season as an IMPACT player

Thursday, June 26, 2008

George Hill became the first IUPUI Jaguars basketball player ever drafted by the NBA Thursday when he was picked in the first round by the San Antonio Spurs.

Hill, the 2008 Summit League Player of the Year, made his mark during Jaguar career, leading IUPUI to a school-record 26 wins in his final season, an overall 63-33 record in his 96 career games and a 37-14 in league contests in which he played. And he helped make The Jungle a tough place for IUPUI foes; in the 40 games he played on his home court, the Jags roared to an overpowering 35-5 record.

The Indianapolis native, who led Indiana high school basketball players in scoring as a senior at Broad Ripple High School, was one of a the growing number of Indiana All-Stars to make IUPUI their college basketball program of choice.
