Two UK signees are Kentucky All-Stars

Miss Basketball Sarah Beth Barnette of Lexington Christian and Samantha Drake of Nelson County were selected for the 12-member Kentucky All-Star Team in its annual battle with the Indiana stars. Barnette is an automatic entrant as Miss Basketball and she will wear the No. 1 jersey in the charity game. Drake was selected by a committee of coaches from around the state.

If you’re interested in seeing either player on the court before next season, the games are June 11 at Bellarmine University. Gametime is set for 5:30 p.m. and it will be immediately followed by the boys’ game. The next day, the two teams will meet again at Conseco Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.
