Clint Swan spoke about it on Wednesday night, as did Tyler Wideman. How would Mr. Basketball Trey Lyles of Indianapolis Tech peform in Friday night's Indiana-Kentucky All-Star game at Transylvania University in Lexington, Kentucky.

Lyles did not play in either game against the Junior All-Stars earlier this week due to injury.

“These kids all know Trey and how he plays the game,” said Swan, an Indiana All-Star assistant coach. “He is such a talent and such a team player that he will fit in with all the guys very well. I am sure of that.”

Lake Central's Wideman played against Lyles in the Class 4A state championship game in March. He has gotten to know the Kentucky-bound big man very well this week.

“Trey will be fine,” Wideman said. “We all know how to play with him.”

But Lyles did not play Friday night, again, but the Indiana All-Stars still outgunned Kentucky 104-94, as Marion's James Blackmon Jr. scored 41 points to help Indiana reach 100 for the third straight game.

“That kid can flat out play,” Swan said on Wednesday. “He can score just like his dad.”

Park Tudor's Trevon Bluiett scored 18 points and grabbed eight rebounds. Greensburg's Bryant McIntosh chipped in 13 and Carmel's Zach McRoberts scored 11.

Wideman scored eight points and grabbed a team-high nine rebounds in the win, which gives Indiana a 90-42 lead in the series.

Kentucky's Quentin Snider scored 37 points in the loss.

In the girls game, also at the Clive Beck Center, the Indiana All-Stars beat Kentucky 83-70. Lawrence North's Ana Owens led the way with 26 points on 9-of-16 shooting. Miss Basketball, Whitney Jennings of Logansport, added 21 points. Both stars hit three 3-pointers.

Kentucky's Javonna Layfield led her team with 18 points.

Indianapolis Ben Davis' Danielle Cuttino led the Hoosiers with 10 rebounds. Lawrence North's Destiny Washington scored nine points with six rebounds.

Indiana now leads the series 42-35 heading into tonight's game at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis which will tip off at 4 p.m., with the boys game right after.
