INDIANAPOLIS -- There's just one way to describe Saturday's Kentucky-Indiana boys and girls high school all-star games at Market Square Arena: Blowouts.

Indiana won both. The girls ran to a 108-63 victory behind April Traylor's 21 points, and Maynard Lewis' 17 points led Indiana's boys to a 108-70 triumph.

The Kentucky girls' loss was the second-worst in the series' 46-game history. The boys' loss was the worst in the event's 101-game history.

The girls' loss marked the high school finale for Boone County's Michelle Cottrell and Suzie Smith. Cottrell scored just two points Saturday and five in last week's 89-87 win in Frankfort, while Smith did not score in either contest.

Kentucky's boys sought their first sweep since 1986. That hope ended the same as the girls' -- a first-half scoring run. Indiana went on a 27-8 streak for a 50-29 lead with 1:08 left before halftime.
