Frankton's Korn makes impact for Indiana Junior All-Stars

GREENFIELD — Aaron Korn can't remember the last time he wasn't on the court at the start of a basketball game before Friday night.

But for the Indiana Junior All-Stars, he was happy to make the sacrifice.

The Frankton star was the picture of efficiency against rival Kentucky, scoring 12 points in about 12 minutes of playing time and finishing as one of four Indiana players in double figures during a thrilling 108-102 overtime victory to kick off the annual series.

"These are some of the best players in Indiana," Korn said afterward, munching on a slice of postgame pizza. "It was an honor to be a part of it. Just to be on this team is awesome."

Korn won't make the trip with his teammates today to finish off the home-and-home series against Kentucky in Louisville, but he will take the court again with them next Wednesday in Tipton against the Indiana Senior All-Stars.

"Hopefully, we can win that one, too," he said.

Korn checked into Friday's game at Greenfield-Central High School for the first time with 15:39 remaining in the first half and Indiana trailing 10-4. He made an instant impact with four quick points and a steal off a deflection. He could have added an assist to that total, but a quick-thinking Kentucky defender knocked the ball away from his target as he was rising to shoot.

It was a fast start and the continuation of a strong offseason that has helped the 6-foot-4 shooting guard open eyes across the state.

"There's a lot of people who he's caught the attention of, especially in the last few months," Frankton coach Brent Brobston, attending the game as a fan, said. "He just has to make the decision that's best for him."
