Joey Hart announces transfer to Ball State

Apr. 18—Former Linton High School standout Joey Hart, whose strong performances included trips to the Wabash Valley Classic in Terre Haute, announced his next college basketball destination Thursday — Ball State.

Hart posted on X (formerly Twitter) his commitment. He'd played sparingly last season at Kentucky, where John Calipari had coached until leaving for Arkansas earlier this month.

The 6-foot-4 guard averaged 23 points per game as a Linton senior.
