    It could be one of those rare instances when the expectations could be warranted as the Lady Bearcats will probably be one of the favorites to win the whole shebang next year.

    Let that sink in for a minute: Anderson will be one of the teams given strong consideration as the team to beat in Kentucky in 2014.

    They should have been in Diddle, too.

    It seemed like everyone else in Lawrenceburg was there.
