The Indiana-Kentucky All-Star Series has recently been run by Indiana, and that streak continued tonight thanks to Ryan Cline. The incoming Purdue guard led Indiana with 23 points tonight, including a game-winning basket with 25 seconds left as Indiana won its 13th straight over Kentucky 83-80 in Lexington.
Indiana trailed 80-79 after a three-pointer from Kentucky's James Bolden, but Cline had an answer with a driving layup. Jaelan Sanford then blocked Kentucky's game-winning attempt and scored on a layup at the buzzer. Cline also hit two critical three pointers in the last four minutes with Indiana trailing by 7 to get the good guys back into it.
In the girls game things went much easier for Indiana. Indiana rolled to a 93-49 win with a balanced effort all-around. Incoming point guard Tiara Murphy had five points in 15 minutes. Dominique McBryde did not play after suffering a concussion against the juniors earlier this week.
Round two of the All-Star Series of Kentucky will take place Saturday night at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.
