OWENSBORO — Spectra, the providers of Venue Management to the Owensboro Sportscenter, has announced the return of the Kentucky-Indiana All-Star Game to Owensboro.
The Kentucky-Indiana All-Star Game is the oldest continuing high school all-star game in the U.S. Since 1940, with the exception of two years during World War II and last year during the pandemic, the game has showcased the best high school seniors in the two states.
Beginning in 1953, a home-and-home series took place with one game in each state.
This year, the game in Kentucky will be played on June 11 at the Owensboro Sportscenter.
The game in Indiana will take place the following day on June 12 at Southport Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.
Prior to those games, each state will name its top high school senior player for both boys and girls, who will be recognized as Mr. Basketball and Miss Basketball.
“The Kentucky-Indiana All-Star Game has a rich history of being in Owensboro, and we are thrilled to welcome them back to the Owensboro Sportscenter after all these years,” said Laura Alexander, general manager with Spectra Venue Management at the Owensboro Sportscenter.
The complete lineups for the 2021 Kentucky and Indiana All-Stars and ticket information will be coming soon.
