“font-family: Verdana”>Indiana Miss Basketball Skylar Diggins of

South Bend Washington will lead the Indiana Girls All-Star team

when they face the Kentucky All-Stars in June.

“font-family: Verdana”>Stan Benge of Class 4A state champion Ben

Davis will coach the team, which the sponsoring Indianapolis Star

announced in its Thursday edition.

“font-family: Verdana”>The team is led by three players considered

among the best produced by the state in recent years: the Notre

Dame-bound Diggins, Heritage Christian’s Kelly Farris (Connecticut)

and Ben Davis’ Alex Bentley (Penn State).

“font-family: Verdana”>Bentley will be joined by her Ben Davis

teammate DeAirra Goss (Western Michigan). Other Indianapolis-area

players selected include Hamilton Southeastern’s Courtney Osborn

(Miami of Ohio), Carmel’s Chrissy Steffen (Bowling Green), and

Eminence’s Aulani Sinclair (Indiana).

“font-family: Verdana”>Benge said he is impressed by the perimeter

and wing players, but the lack of a true post player concerns him.

Terre Haute South’s Dragana Grbic (Butler) is a likely candidate to

fill that spot.

“font-family: Verdana”>Rounding out the roster are Skyler Gick

(Benton Central), Ta’Kenya Nixon (Michigan City), Lecretia Smith

(Fort Wayne Elmhurst), Lily Svete (Penn) and Sydney Weinert (Fort

Wayne South Side).

“font-family: Verdana”>The Indiana All-Stars play their Kentucky

counterparts at Conseco Fieldhouse June 13 and at Bellarmine

University in Louisville, Ky., on June 14.
