High school basketball is not even close in Kentucky to what it is on the Indiana side. They messed it up in Indiana when they made the class system and ruined what used to be the best high school basketball tournament ever but thats anoter story. To make a long story short, the gyms on the Indiana side hold as many as 4 or 5+ thousand and the ones just across the River in Louisville hold maybe 1000 if that. Talent wise, I don't really know. I'd say it's probably about even. I can't think of any recent players to be big in college from the Southern Indiana area, but Greg Oden and Mike Conley, Jr. have obviously hit it big and they played in Indiana. There is more tradition in high school basketball in Indiana.

As far as college, Kentucky is probably the bigger and better program but currently I'd say Louisville has a better future ahead of them. Both are good programs, and both have a large following with a lot of passionate fans. Both teams sell out pretty much if not all home games.

And yes, basketball is still king in Kentucky.

Football has made huge strides in Louisville with UL's successful Orange Bowl. And even baseball is coming on with UL making it's first appearance in the College World Series.

But yes, basketball is still king.
