Kristen Stainback didn't make it back to the Sweet Sixteen this season, but she will get to play in a couple of big games in June.
Stainback, a former standout at Scott County, was announced as one of the 12 players who will represent Kentucky in its annual All-Star series with Indiana.
Several other players from around the area also were selected to be part of the team, which was announced Monday morning.
Those include Caprisha Rogers of Clark County and Carla Booth of Sheldon Clark. Booth has signed with Eastern Kentucky.
Sara Hammond of defending state champion Rockcastle County was selected as Kentucky Miss Basketball and will wear the No. 1 jersey when Kentucky plays in the annual border war with Indiana on June 10 at Bellarmine in Louisville and on June 11 at Conseco Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.
Louisville is well represented on the team, which is to be coached by Bullitt East's Chris Stalling. He will be assisted by Manual's Stacy Pendleton and Chris Souder of Mercer County.
There are three girls from the Louisville area on the team, including Mechael Guess, who played for Sweet Sixteen runner-up Manual and who has signed to play volleyball at Pittsburgh; Mercy's Juliann Miller, who has signed with Evansville; and Sacred Heart's Maddie Peabody, a standout in both soccer and basketball who has signed with Lafayette College.
Two Western Kentucky signees who will be on the team are Chasity Gooch of Franklin-Simpson and Danay Fothergill of Pulaski Southwestern.
The Big East has three signees in Hammond (Louisville), Calloway County's Averee Fields (West Virginia) and Scott's Lauren Tibbs (Marquette).
In an interesting turn of events, Indiana's Miss Basketball, 5-foot-10 guard Bria Goss of Ben Davis, has signed with the University of Kentucky. She was a McDonald's All-American with Hammond.
