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


Korn has been receiving interest from a host of NCAA Div. I programs, but he remains undecided on his college choice. He said earlier this spring that he'd like to make a call before school starts in August so he can focus solely on his senior year with the Eagles.

If he keeps playing the way he did against Kentucky, his options only will expand.

Korn's 12 points came on 5-of-9 shooting, and he was 2-for-3 from 3-point range. His first trifecta cut Kentucky's lead to 31-27 with a little under five minutes left in the first half, and his second pulled Indiana within 75-71 with 8:05 remaining in the game.

He also had two rebounds, a steal, an assist and a blocked shot.

"That's one of the good characteristics of his game," Brobston said. "He's an all-around player, and he's an all-around team player. He does a lot of things for us at the high school level."

While Korn was instrumental in keeping Kentucky within hailing distance, he wasn't on the court for many of the late-game theatrics.

Indiana's only lead of the first half came on a 3-pointer by Mount Vernon's C.J. Coleman to make it 20-19 at the 9:04 mark. Kentucky led the rest of the way until Fort Wayne Concordia's D.J. McCall capped a fastbreak with a dunk with 5:25 to go.

That gave Indiana, which had trailed 71-60 minutes earlier, a short-lived 82-81 advantage. There were five more lead changes and two ties to go.

Kentucky's Kelan Martin forced overtime with a 3-pointer that knotted the score 90-90 with 6.8 seconds to play, but Indiana opened the extra session with five straight points to regain control.

When Arsenal Tech's Trey Lyles made a block on the defensive end and incoming Marion senior James Blackmon Jr. turned it into a 3-pointer at the other end, Indiana led 102-96 with 1:29 to play and the game was essentially over.
