Kentucky Has Rough Showing in KY-IN All Star Games

Indiana swept Kentucky as the state won both games of the annual all-star showcase over the weekend by more than 30 points each. Indiana was victorious in the first matchup on Friday night by a score of 97-64, and the state won again on Saturday by a score of 120-74.

The series sweep comes after Kentucky split the last four games over the last two years. Indiana now leads the all-time series, 99-44, and has won 30 of the last 34 games played. However, it is important to note that this year saw several talented Kentucky players not able to participate in the showcase. Dontaie Allen, was not able to play due to continuing recovery from off-season knee surgery and an injury suffered in an April car accident. Michael Moreno of Scott County who signed with Eastern Kentucky, did not play as well due to injury, and Kyle Rode of Lexington Christian Academy who signed with Liberty University did not participate as well.

Despite those heavy losses, Kentucky still had very talented players like KyKy Tandy, David Johnson, Isaiah Cozart on the court. However, the team was just simply outclassed by Indiana’s all star team. Considering the overall dominance displayed in this series by the hooiser state, Kentucky needs to start competing more consistently to justify this showcase’s existence. Otherwise, tweets like this from verified accounts would not exist:

Oh well. Congrats to Indiana on being good on just one level of basketball.

    To bad for Kent that Indiana high school basketball has meant little to no success for Indiana University in recent years. 1987 was a long time ago. ?

      Are you high nocode? If not I think you may have a condition.

      Actually though we may have 1 kid a year good enough to play at Kentucky if they stay 4 years.

      Sarcasm. He even made it rather obvious that he was making fun of all the in-state basketball experts that think we can win championships if we just had some more good ole players from Kentucky – preferably from the mountains.

    Hoosiers (the movie) is the only good thing to come out of that state. And, the fact that they finally allowed stock cars to race at Indy. CATS
