After a narrow victory Saturday night, the Indiana All-Star winning streak against Kentucky came to an end Sunday. Kentucky beat Indiana 111-110 in double overtime in Frankfort, Kentucky.
Indiana jumped out to a 13-4 lead to begin the game, but Kentucky led most of the first half. Peyton Broughton was the spark early. He scored all 10 of his points in the first half. Later in the half, it was Terry Taylor that came alive for Kentucky. Taylor was a key to the victory for Kentucky. He finished with 22 points and 17 rebounds. He is headed to Austin Peay.

Kris Wilkes made a lot of key plays in the final minutes of regulation. He did a little of everything for Indiana. If he didn’t produce at a high level, Indiana would not have been in the game. Wilkes finished with 28 points and 14 rebounds.
On the other side, Jake Ohmer was a monster in the second half for Kentucky. He scored 22 of his 30 points after halftime. He recorded seven rebounds and five steals as well. His play was a deciding factor in the game.
A technical foul on Mack Smith with under a minute to play placed Indiana behind the eight ball. Indiana still had a chance to tie the game but came up short.
