Bell County standout Maci Morris is among the 18 players named to the Kentucky Junior All-Star girls’ team, which was announced on Wednesday.


The team will represent Kentucky in games against junior teams from Indiana on June 6 in Indianapolis and June 7 in Lexington.


Morris, who has committed to the University of Kentucky, is considered on of the nation’s top 50 players in the Class of 2015. The 6-0 guard will also enter next season as one of the favorites for Kentucky’s Miss Basketball Award.


The junior games take place one week before the senior Kentucky All-Stars meet the Indiana All-Stars in the traditional rivalry between the two states.


The senior games take place June 13 at Transylvania’s Beck Center and June 14 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.


The junior rosters were assembled after tryouts that included more than 50 boys’ and 50 girls’ players.


“To make this team is quite an accomplishment,” said Terry Johnson, executive director of the Bluegrass Sports Commission. “The talent level at tryouts was extraordinary and I applaud the Kentucky Association of Basketball Coaches for their hard work in putting these teams together.”


The rosters for Kentucky’s senior All-Star teams were announced on Thursday.


Those teams will be led by 2014 Mr. and Miss Basketball Award winners Quentin Snider and Ivy Brown who will wear the iconic #1 jersey in the games. The Indiana boys all-stars are headlined by University of Kentucky signee and Indiana’s Mr. Basketball, Trey Lyles.


Former Corbin coach Jennifer Parsons is the head coach of the Kentucky Senior girls’ team.
