Elliott stars in Kentucky-Indiana All-Star Game
University of Kentucky Signee Sarah Elliott was in action in Indianapolis and in Owensboro at the annual Kentucky-Indiana All-Star Game. The freshmen-to-be was one of the most attractive players on the court, showing Kentucky fans unfamiliar with her game, what to look for in the coming years.
"She has consistently improved her game each year since her 8th grade season and should be a very effective player for University of Kentucky," Blue Chip All Stars Camp Director Jim Underwood said. "Sarah has great hands, excellent post moves and can knock down the 12-15 foot shot, which makes her very effective on the offensive end of the court, with strength she will be a very effective player on the defensive end of the court as well."
"Sarah Elliott was rated as the number 1 player in her class in Kentucky this year by the Blue Chip All Stars and was voted the best player on a survey of high school coaches in Kentucky by the B/C All Stars Report."
"Look for her to make an impact at U of K by her Sophomore year"

Kentucky's biggest need in 2005 appears to be at point guard, where the Cats have made an early offer to in-state star Carly Ormerod. Much has been made about Ormerod's skills at the point, but nobody can doubt her leadership abilities after leading Sacred Heart to another championship last season.
"Carly Ormerod is in the top 3 players in her class," Blue Chip All-Stars Camp Director Jim Underwood told Inside Kentucky. "She is very quick, knows the game, can handle the ball, pass and score when needed."
"Without her the past 3 years Sacred Heart may not have been able to have had the success they enjoyed," Underwood continued. "Look for her to have a very good college career as well."
