Curtis enjoys All-Star experience

Indianapolis — It was the end of an excellent high school career for Lebanon’s Katie Curtis Saturday in the Indiana All-Stars game against Kentucky.

Curtis and her Indiana teammates ended a three-game losing streak to Kentucky with a 100-86 victory.

“It is just a huge reward for how much time I have put into basketball my entire life up until now,” Curtis said of her All-Stars experience. “Even moving on, I will be able to tell my kids about it, and all this stuff. Just to put the cap on my high school career with the Indiana All-Stars is very humbling.”

The Indiana girls came in having lost three in a row to Kentucky and 7 of the last 10.

Coming out with a victory was important, Curtis said.

“Breaking the streak definitely was one of our goals,” Curtis said. “They have beat us a couple in a row and it feels good to be able to accomplish that goal.”

The game was close for most of the first half, with Indiana going on a 7-0 run in the final 1:42 to take a six-point halftime lead.

In the second half, the Indiana All-Stars started on a 22-8 run to go up by 20. Kentucky got within seven with 5:09 remaining, but the lead was never in jeopardy.

“Yesterday, they definitely had the upper hand coming into it,” Curtis said. “We played a little tentatively. Today, that was one of our goals — to deliver the first punch and go from there.”

Curtis contributed one points, one rebound, four assists and three steals in eight minutes of action.

She led the team in steals and her four assists were second on the team.

“Going up against Kentucky, where most of the girls are bigger and a little stronger than me — actually a lot stronger — I just filled my role of shooting the ball and getting a few assists,” Curtis said.
