Kentucky vs Indiana All Star Game #BBN #L1C4 #IU

Is the Kentucky, Indiana all star game a tradition? Should it be?
No on the tradition, and yes it should be! Think about it, ESPN features many showcase games during the summer, providing us, the viewer, with the future of college basketball. This is a showcase game of talent and it can still be considered a rivalry. Putting it nicely, Indiana has had their way with Kentucky over the last decade, that can change, but support is needed.
This Summer, as you may have heard, ESPN Sports Radio 1300 will be providing coverage on a limited basis as we will air a featured "Game Night Hoo Rah" broadcasting the Kentucky Senior and Junior all star game Wednesday night at the Beck Center on Transylvania University's campus. This is a smaller venue that has the potential to be rocking this Wednesday night and Friday Night.
Go! Attend! Have fun! Enjoy some basketball during the month of June!
Here are some quick details.
Seniors vs Juniors this Wednesday night, pregame at 7pm, tipoff at 8pm. Play by Play- Eric Mathews, Analyst- Neil Jackson, featured guest- Scott True, photography- Dave Redden.
KY vs IN All Star game this Friday Night at the Beck Center- Girls 5:30 tipoff, Boys 8:00 tipoff.

The Cardinals and the Commodores are currently in a rebuilding phase, and in this contest the Cardinals may be a little more advanced. Keep an eye on both of these programs as they will progress greatly in the years to come!
