Becca Greenwell Has Another Chance to Shine Before Duke

Facebook

Owensboro’s pride and joy Becca Greenwell has a big week in Louisville. Thursday night, at the Kentucky Athlete Hall of Fame, she will be one of three recognized as a Kentucky Athlete of the Year. She is so nice to people. I have seen her at Health Park and she’s always the center (no pun intended) of attention. She always has a ready smile and hand shake for her fans.

Then, Friday night the Duke-bound, former Owensboro Catholic and McDonalds’ All-American star will join in the  Kentucky vs. Indiana All-Star Classic. The girls tip off in Freedom Hall at 5:30 p.m., with the boys following directly after at 7:30 p.m. Becca is already well known for setting the female record for the most three-point shots in a high school basketball game with 17.   She is also a Miss Kentucky Basketball candidate and gold medal winner of the 2011 FIBA Americas U16 Championship. Although she has been recovering from surgery, Becca plans to attend camp with the All-Stars. You’re invited to see her before she leaves for Duke.The star-studded Kentucky roster includes both Miss Basketball Makayla Epps and Mr. Basketball Dominique Hawkins, both University of Kentucky commits. Alongside their future Kentucky teammates, Derek Willis will play for the mens and Kyvin Goodin-Rogers for the women’s all-star teams. For Indiana, the talented roster contains Mr. Basketball Zak Irvin and Miss Basketball Stephanie Mavunga, an Indiana recruit, as well as Devin Davis, Collin Hartman and Jenn Anderson, also playing basketball at Indiana University.

First played in 1940, the Kentucky-Indiana All-Star Classic is the longest running all-star game in the country. Tickets are $20 and $11, and good for both games. Tickets are on sale at the Kentucky Exposition Center, Kentucky International Convention Center Ticket Offices, Ticketmaster outlets, by calling 1-800-745-3000 or online. Parking at the Kentucky Exposition Center is $8 per vehicle.
