TED HULL '79
Inducted 2000



A native of Binghamton, N.Y., Ted Hull played basketball at the University from 1975-79. He received his bachelor's degree in business management in 1979, and earned his master's degree in finance from Florida Atlantic University in 1983. A point guard and three-year captain who combined playmaking with an acute scoring touch, Hull scored 1,007 points in his four-year career - becoming just the sixth player in the program's first 33 years to reach the milestone. His trademark 25-foot jumpers - many of which he banked off the glass - were so commonplace, one can only imagine what his impact might have been in the current era of the three-point shot.
As a much-heralded local recruit, Hull wasted no time etching his name in the record books. Midway through his freshman season, he recorded a program-best 14 assists - a total Hull would duplicate in his sophomore season-opener. Hull's most productive season was in 1976-77, where he averaged a team-high 16.0 points per game and set a school single-season record with 146 assists. In an early season win, he poured in a career-high 35 points - thanks to 10-of-14 shooting from the field and 15-of-17 marksmanship from the free throw line. He also scored 20 points against Colgate in Binghamton's first-ever meeting with a Division I opponent.
By season's end, Hull was chosen team MVP, and earned All-SUNYAC and All-State honors. He graduated holding records for assists in a game, season and career (527). In 87 collegiate games, he averaged 11.6 points and 6.1 assists per game, and shot 73% from the free throw line.
