Lexington will host next three Kentucky-Indiana All-Star games

The Bluegrass Sports Commission and the Kentucky Lions Eye Foundation on Wednesday announced a three-year contract for the Kentucky/Indiana All-Star Classic to be played in Lexington.

The event annually matches the top boys and girls high school basketball players in Kentucky against the best in Indiana.

This year’s games will be held June 13 at Transylvania University’s Beck Center and will be televised by CW-WKYT in Lexington and WYMT in Hazard.

“This is a very exciting announcement for us,” said Terry Johnson, Executive Director of the BSC. “We are honored to work with Transylvania, WKYT and others to host an event with such a rich history that supports the amazing work of the Kentucky Lions Eye Foundation.”

Though the event has a long history, 2014 will mark just the sixth time it will be held in Lexington and the first since 1996.

Ticket information and additional details will be released at a later date.
