Indiana All-Stars enjoy successful run
The IndyStar.com Indiana All-Stars completed a successful run against Kentucky in their annual series for 2014.
For the first time, Indiana has swept its Bluegrass neighbors in all four series in the same year — the Senior boys, the Senior girls, the Junior boys and the Junior girls.
Indiana’s James Blackmon Jr. of Marion and Kentucky’s Quentin Snider of Louisville each scored 64 points over two games to move into a tie for third place in two-game scoring in the Senior boys games that date to 1940. Their total ranks behind only George McGinnis (76 points in 1969) and Oscar Robertson (75 points in 1956).
Blackmon’s output of 41 points in Indiana’s 104-94 victory on Friday (June 13) tied Robertson for third in single-game scoring. The only players to score more have been McGinnis (53 in 1969) and Kentucky’s Jim McDaniels (42 in 1967). Snider scored 37 points in the June 13 game to now stand sixth for a single game. Indiana’s Luke Recker is now fifth with 38 points in a 1997 game.
Snider dropped in six 3-pointers in his 37-point effort, tying the record for 3-pointers in a game. He joins Indiana’s Evan Seacat (2002) and Kentucky’s Matt Walls (2007) atop that category.
In the girls game the same night, an 83-70 Indiana victory, Ana Owens of Lawrence North dropped in 26 points to tie for 10th place in the single-game scoring list in a series that dates to 1976. The girls’ single-game record is 31 points by Indiana’s Tiffany Gooden in 1994.
Another highlight was a crowd of 6,520 for the games at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis. That attendance was a 30 percent increase over the attendance at the 2008 games.
