It’s been kind of a strange season for Anderson County basketball.
The Bearcats entered the season as one of the teams, if not THE team to beat in the Eighth Region. They were a solid choice to make the trip to Rupp Arena for the Sweet 16 in March when I conducted a poll of the region’s coaches for The Cats Pause last summer.
But when the Rating the State rankings came out in Monday’s Lexington Herald-Leader, the Bearcats were ranked seventh in the region. They were ranked third in the 30th District.
