  • BLOG: Lady Bearcats can make basketball history Saturday

    It is tough enough to win a regional championship in Kentucky basketball. Out of more than 260 high schools only a select few, the “Sweet 16” are fortunate enough to have the combination of basketball skill and luck to make it through five or six win-or-go-home games.  Each game, in theory at least, is a bit tougher than the next.

  • Going for another crown! Lady Bearcats advance to regional final

    WARSAW – For the fourth consecutive year, Anderson County will be playing in the girls' Eighth Region Tournament basketball game.

    The Lady Bearcats assured themselves of a shot at repeating their Sweet 16 appearance of last season with a 47-44 win over Owen County on Friday night at Gallatin County High School.

  • BLOG: Final Four atmosphere awaits Lady Bearcats

    I can't think of a better basketball day than when it is time for the semi-finals of the regional tournament.

    Four teams, all good, all with the same goal, usually gathered in a high school gymnasium not quite equipped to handle a crowd of that magnitude. But they manage that one night a year.

  • BLOG: McKee can do her talking with a championship

    When I heard the news that Anderson County’s Eriel McKee had not been named to the coaches’ All-Region team, I reacted like any normal person who has seen much girls’ basketball this year would.

    “You ARE kidding, right?”

    No kidding. When the 15-girl team was announced recently, there was no McKee on it.

    It is unbelievable.

  • Lady Bearcats hold on to district crown

    TAYLORSVILLE – All business. Anderson County was all business Friday.
    And that meant there would be no funny business in the championship game of the girls’ 30th District Tournament, held at Spencer County High School.

    The Lady Bearcats never trailed. They jumped to a quick lead, held off Collins’ best punch then imposed their will enough for a 57-48 win to capture their third straight district title. “It never gets old,” smiled freshman Eriel McKee, who has been a member of all three of those district titles.
