(6-11-22) The Kentucky All Star team after losing a heart-breaker in Owensboro last night came back strong on the road in Southport knocking off the Indiana All Stars 101-76. It is the 2nd year in a row the Kentucky All Stars have won the game played in Indiana.
The two teams split the series…with both teams winning on the road. Sometimes home court advantage is not what Dorothy thought it would be like.
