  • Lady Bearcats heat up, rout Woodford

    It appears that Anderson County heated up before the weather did.

    The Lady Bearcats torched visiting Woodford County with an 8-0 start and kept up the heat with one of their best defensive efforts of the season on the way to an easier-than-expected 54-39 win Friday night.

    Eriel McKee led Anderson with 16 points and, it seemed at least, as many steals and deflections.

  • Bearcats able to smile as losing streak ends

    You just thought you had seen everything that could happen to Anderson County basketball happen in 2011.

    Until three minutes remained in the first half of Saturday night's homecoming game with Grant County, that is. Leading 22-21, the Bearcats appeared to have made a defensive stop. A layup attempt by Grant's Xavier Thompson rolled around the rim.

    And rolled. And rolled, getting slower. Finally, the ball came to a complete stop on the bracket holding the rim to the backboard. Such a situation calls for a jump ball but Grant retained possession.
