Embracing All-Star week

In some ways, Ally Lehman feels more like a football player than a member of the 2013 Indiana Girls All-Star basketball team.

Her days begin at 9 a.m. with a wake-up call. Fifteen minutes later, it’s off to breakfast.

By 10 a.m., she’s participating in the first of two lengthy practices each day during All-Star week - except on the day of exhibition games, when it’s morning practice, followed in the evening by a game.

“I’m not used to two-a-days, so this is a new one,” said Lehman, who, fatigue notwithstanding, is savoring every moment of the All-Star experience.

She reported to All-Star camp at Marian University on June 8 and has been working and traveling with the team in advance of today’s and Saturday’s games against the Kentucky All-Stars.

Indiana is in Louisville’s Freedom Hall today for a 5:30 p.m. tipoff. The boys game follows at 7:30 p.m.
