The Indiana All-Stars had the biggest star in the building, but Kentucky had the better team.

The Kentucky All-Star boys' basketball team defeated the Indiana edition, 100-89, to pick up its second straight win in the series on Friday. Kentucky's girls also defeated Indiana, 92-87, at Bellarmine University in Louisville.

The teams were scheduled play again Saturday at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.

Fairdale's Markelo Sullivan scored a game-high 28 points Friday and was named Player of the Game. He was 11 of 21 and 5-for-9 from the three-point line.
