INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana Miss Basketball Whitney Jennings and Sydney Buck each scored 14 points and the Indiana girls’ all-star basketball team completed a sweep of the annual summer series with Kentucky on Saturday with an 83-56 victory at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

A night after winning 83-70 in Lexington, Indiana took control early. Indiana forced 16 first-half turnovers and used a pressuring perimeter defense to keep Kentucky from finding an offensive rhythm.

After falling behind 43-28 at halftime, Kentucky used a full-court press to begin the second half. But that allowed Indiana to score in transition and get easy baskets.

Ivy Brown, Kentucky’s Miss Basketball, scored 11 points, and Eriel McKee had nine.
