Indiana completes weekend sweep of Kentucky
After a 78-65 win Saturday evening in Conseco Fieldhouse, the Indiana All-Stars headed south to Louisville looking to complete a sweep of the Kentucky All-Stars at Knights Hall on the campus of Bellarmine University.
And they did just that.
Led again by Errick Peck, who will attend Cornell University, Indiana defeated Kentucky 64-49 . The Hoosier state continues to dominate the interstate series and now leads 82-42 all-time.
Peck finished with a game-high 14 points and Purdue signee D.J. Byrd added 10.
Indiana out-rebounded Kentucky 51-46 and limited Kentucky Mr. Basketball Jon Hood to just eight points in 26 minutes. Hood scored 20 points in Saturday’s game in Indianapolis.
Mr. Basketball Jordan Hulls was just 1 of 9 from the field and finished with four points. But like he normally does, Hulls played a solid floor game and dished out five assists, grabbed five rebounds and had two steals. His future teammate at Indiana, Derek Elston, had four points and eight rebounds.
