At least two Anderson County basketball players can get some advice on what to expect Thursday night when the Bearcats take on Elliott County in the Sweet 16.
Senior Walt Ruggles and junior Jacob Russell are apparently the first Anderson players to follow a parent on a Sweet 16 team.
David Ruggles, Walt’s dad, played on Anderson’s first Sweet 16 team in 1971 that made it all the way to the championship game before losing to Male. Judy Russell made it to the girls’ Sweet 16 in 1978. That team lost to Owensboro in the first round.
