cTTie (oats/ &am£ Second Annual Kentucky Prep All-Star Festival Set For Mid-July Two teams from Kentucky will do battle with 14 others from around the country as the nation's top high school basketball talent returns to Lexington for the second-annual Kentucky Prep All-Star Festival July 15-17 at Memorial Coliseum. The 16-team, single-elimination event gets underway at noon on Friday, July 15, and concludes with the championship game at noon on Sunday, July 17. The Kentucky Junior Ail-Star Team, which recently completed a successful tour of Europe, will act as the Kentucky No. 1 entry. Two 5-foot-ll guards, Travis Ford of Madisonvill-North Hopkins and Michael Allen of Lexington Bryan Station, will lead the way. Ford led the Junior All-Stars, who compiled a 6-1 record on the tour, with a 19.0-point per game average. Allen was the only other player to finish the tour averaging in double figures, with 12.0 ppg. Kentucky will also have another team in the field, which includes two teams from California and Indiana, and one team each from Ohio, Oklahoma, North Carolina, Colorado, Arkansas, Alabama, South Carolina, Tennessee, Georgia and Florida. The tournament will be single-elimination, with the losers advancing into a loser's bracket. Each team is guaranteed of playing three games. Only players with high school eligibility remaining are eligible. Each team must have at least 10 players and no more than 12, and all must be from the same state. All games will be video taped and available to anyone interested at a cost of $25 per game. College coaches from coast-to-coast will be on hand to watch the country's best high school talent. There are 12 games scheduled for Friday, 14 for Saturday and three for Sunday. There will be an MVP selected for each game, a 12-man all-tournament team and a tournament MVP. Individual awards will be given to each player on the top four teams. The tournament will be played under the rules of the National High School Federation, with the following exceptions: ?Each player must play in his team's games. A team must play a five-player unit during the first quarter and a totally different unit during the second quarter. Teams with 12 players must use a sixth player on each unit for at least three minutes during the quarter. There are no restrictions during the second half. ?Each game will consist of four 10-minute quarters. ?Two timeouts will be allowed each team per half. There will be no carryovers (a team can't save a timeout from the first half and use it during the second half). One additional timeout will be allowed for each overtime. ?After a team on offense crosses midcourt, the defensive team must play man-to-man defense. Technical fouls for illegal defense will be called after the first warning. The Red Roof Inn, New Circle & NicholasviUe Road, ph. (606) 277-9400, will serve as tournament headquarters.
