Final: Indiana wins 111-99 over Kentucky. Had Blackmon at 23 points and Bluiett at 28. Expect them to be named co-MVPs. More to come.

1:34 to go: Kentucky making it slightly interesting but not really. Indiana leads 107-95.

4:55 to go: Indiana hasn’t looked back. James Blackmon has 23 points Bluiett has 21 since the break and 28 for the game. Indiana leads 98-77. 

11:29 media timeout: Indiana is rolling now and James Blackmon and Trevon Bluiett are the biggest reasons. Blackmon just hit a 3-pointer. He has 11 points already and 21 for the game. Bluiett has 12 points in the half, 19 for the game. Indiana leads 76-55.

Halftime: Blackmon has 10 points at halftime and Snider has 15. After Kentucky cut Indiana’s lead to 36-34, Indiana went on a 13-2 run to take a 49-36 advantage before Kentucky scored on a tip-in just before the break by Justin Johnson to make it 49-38.

Blackmon is 4-for-9 from the field so far with four assists. Tyler Wideman has eight points and five rebounds. Trevon Bluiett has seven points and five rebounds. Snider is 5-for-8 from the field with three 3-pointers. Kelen Martin, a Butler commitment from Kentucky, has seven points and five rebounds but is shooting 3-for-10. Indiana is shooting 55 percent (22-for-40) while Kentucky is 14-for-42 (33.3 percent). 

3:00 media timeout: Kentucky answered Indiana’s 16-0 run with a 10-0 run to take a 32-30 lead, but Indiana scored six straight points to take a 36-32 lead.

7:22 media timeout: Indiana went on a 16-0 run that included seven points by Tech’s Jeremie Tyler and Indiana led 27-18 and then 30-22. A 3-pointer by Quentin Snider has made it 30-25.

11:39 Media Timeout: A 3-pointer and a dunk by Western Kentucky bound Jordan Green gave Kentucky an 18-11 lead, but Blackmon answered with a 3-pointer and a layup to cut it to 18-16 at the 11;39 mark.

15:12 Media Timeout: James Blackmon hit his first 3-point attempt and had a pair of assists in the first 4:48 but Quentin Snider has already been outstanding for Kentucky with seven of its first 11 points. The game is tied 11-11.

    Consistency from Blackmon. I like it.

  • Dennis says:

    I believe that James had 41 points and Bluiett had 18 at the IN/KY ALL-STAR game.

    The scores posted above were for the IN SENIOR ALL-STARS against the IN JUNIOR ALL-STARS

  • Dennis says:

    Sorry, forget my previous comment above. I did not realize that the second game was played tonight.

    Congratulations to James on a great series.

  • My2CentsWorth says:

    So what’s the story on Trey Lyles? He was in Logansport in street clothes for the Jr. – Sr. game last Monday supposedly with a stress fracture. Then it’s extreme dehydration and fatigue and he’s a complete no-show at Lexington and Indpls. and not so much as a whisper of his name last night at Banker’s Life? Inquiring minds want to know.

    Took this shot while driving through the countryside around Edinburgh, Indiana…What do you guys think?

  • Ben says:

    Taking my dad to Denny’s, but wanted to say Happy Fathers Day to all the fathers on the Scoop!

  • Hoosier Clarion says:

    I know there was a Q in the chat but has any deeper look been done about the hiring of Chuck Martin?

  • MikeC says:

    Everyone knows Calipari doesn’t want his recruits playing in postseason All Star games! I am sure Lyles was given a subtle hint. Right??
