Anderson County overcame deep foul trouble, then pulled away in the second half for a 64-42 win over visiting Danville in boys' basketball action last Monday night.

Darius Harvey came off the bench to score a career-best 23 points and pull down 10 rebounds. Harvey was perfect on 10 field goal attempts.

“We were in bad foul trouble early,” Anderson coach Glen Drury said. “Danville got a lead on us in the second quarter. When we went back ahead for good, we have Harvey, (Josh) Brown, (Austin) Cummins, (John Paul) Garmon and (Dusty) Puckett on the floor.

Anderson rallied, then pulled away from a team whose athleticism concerned Drury.

“Our guys have got to learn that we have us,” Drury said, referring to the idea of trusting one's teammates to get the job done. “We are getting better at it when we have adversity. We are developing depth and that was the key against Danville. This was a good test for us against a very athletic team.”

Harvey, who could be one of the strongest post players in the Eighth Region was undoubtedly the spark, according to Drury. “I was so proud of Darius. He is such a good kid and he has paid his dues.
