Dates, sites set for Kentucky-Indiana All-Star games and tryouts

Tryout dates for the boys’ and girls’ Kentucky All-Star teams as well as the dates for the Kentucky-Indiana All-Star series have been announced by the Kentucky Association of Basketball Coaches.

Tryouts for both teams, which will play the Indiana All-Star teams on June 8 and June 9, are scheduled for April 14 in Lexington. Boys’ tryouts will be held at Paul Laurence Dunbar and girls’ tryouts will be held at Lexington Catholic. The KABC/Dawahares East-West All-Star Games will be held that same evening at Transylvania University’s Beck Center; the girls’ will tip at 5:30 p.m. and the boys at 7:30 p.m.

KABC Regional Players of the Year and runners-up will be invited to tryouts along with “several other worthy players,” according to a news release from the KABC. Those players will be contacted over the coming weeks.

The Kentucky-Indiana All-Star series will be played at Bellarmine University’s Knights Hall in Louisville on Friday, June 8, and at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Ind., on Saturday, June 9.

Kentucky’s All-Star boys last year defeated the Indiana team for the first time since 2008. They ended a 17-game losing streak in the series with a 111-110 double overtime victory in Frankfort. It was the last basketball game played in the Frankfort Convention Center.

The Kentucky girls split their meetings with the Indiana girls last season.
