The traditional Indiana-Kentucky all star games are preparing to get started in June.  There is many hopes that the Indiana all-star team can come out victorious.  The now executive director of the Indiana all-star games is Mike Broughton.  He is a hall-of-fame high school coach who was able to win a state championship while at Jeffersonville.  He joins the show to talk about what he is excited for with these games as Greg Rakestraw fills in for DD.

How many cross-state visits did you take to find your roster for the girls and boys team of high school all-stars?

"Ya I drove about 8,000 or 9,000 miles.  I watched about 60-70 basketball games plus I don't know how many on video.  It was a great experiece, basketball is life in the state of Indiana for high school."

How hard of a job has it been to put this event together, market it, and find the team?

"Well we are awful busy next week.  I'm really looking forward to it. It's a job where you are a little bit of a coach, a little bit of an AD, and involved in marketing and have a wide range of things to do.  I've really enjoyed it and it's been great experience.  It's for the kids of the state, we are on year number 81 and we would like to continue this game.  I think Kentucky has a fantastic team this year and honestly oen of the best teams they have had.  One kid going to Kentucky and one to Lousville, also a kid going to Western Kentucky and two to Xavier. It'll be a really good game and the girls team from Kentucky has six division one players themselves so we are looking forward to some really good battles in the next week."

The first two games are set to tip off next week in Louisville, Kentucky.  They will all be live on ISC Sports Network.
