  • Anderson to play Bryan Station in King Classic

    Anderson County will get a test Saturday when the Lady Bearcats take on Bryan Station in the Martin Luther King Classic, held at Paul L. Dunbar High School in Lexington. Tipoff is set for 4:30 p.m.

    Bryan Station has gotten off to a 10-1 start with the only loss coming to defending 11th Region champion Scott County.

    Tuesday, Anderson will host Mercer County, which the Lady Bearcats defeated in the Mercer tourney.

  • Elizabethtown is 'not Top 10 for nothing'

    HARRODSBURG – This time, Anderson County could not even stay close.

    Not for long, that is.

    Throughout a month of playing some of the state’s best girls’ basketball teams, the Lady Bearcats had been in the games, even in a position to pull the upset a time or two. They’d lost by one point to Sacred Heart. They had been within four before running out of gas in the final minutes against Perry Central.

  • Bond goes undetected, sends Harlan County to Sayre title

    LEXINGTON – This James Bond was not a 007, but he was enough for Harlan County last Thursday night.

    Bond got his golden fingers on a loose ball, then, just as his more famous counterpart, found a view to a kill – in the form of an open lane to the basket – Anderson County’s hope of an improbable championship in the Sayre Holiday Classic.

  • Bearcats hold off Sayre in first game of classic

    LEXINGTON – Anderson County seemed poised to rout host Sayre, scoring the first seven points, then building a lead as large as 33-16 early in the third quarter, but had to hold on to defeat the Spartans, 57-48, in the Sayre Holiday Classic opener last Tuesday night.

    “We will take it,” Anderson coach Glen Drury said. “The kids are going to get better. This was the first time we have had to play with a lead and the kids did not have the experience to know how to protect the lead.”

  • District seeding on the line as Anderson takes on Collins, Eminence

    Now the real season begins for Anderson County. Well, sort of.

    The Bearcats' main concern is to get better each week, hoping to peak when tournament play begins. However, Friday's game with 30th District foe Collins will be a factor in how things shape up in seeding the district tournament.

    "We want to play well in all of our seeding games, so this game is very important," Anderson coach Glen Drury says.

    A first-year school formed out of Shelby County, Collins has gotten off to a 7-4 start under veteran coach Curtis Turley, who coached at Shelby in the late 1990's.

  • Middle school teams have strong showing in Frankfort

    The Anderson County Middle School basketball teams had good showings in the Capital City Classic, held at Elkhorn Middle School last week. The Anderson sixth- and eighth-grade teams took second place in their respective brackets.

    The eighth-graders lost to Frankfort, then defeated Louisville Crosby, Elkhorn and Lexington Traditional to get to the championship game, where they fell to Southern Middle School, of Pulaski County, 35-24. The eighth grade Mustangs are now 13-3 on the year.

  • Lady Bearcats rout Henry Clay

    Anderson County jumped to a 14-6 lead after a quarter and never looked back as the Lady Bearcats trounced host Henry Clay in girls’ high school basketball action on Tuesday night.

    Freshman Mackenzie Cann buried five 3-point shots and scored 20 points to lead Anderson, which improved to 10-4 on the season. Another freshman, Eriel McKee, scored 13.

    Henry Clay fell to 2-7.

  • Harlan County nips Anderson in Sayre tournament

    Harlan County scored on a layup with 4.5 seconds to play in overtime to defeat Anderson County 61-60 in the Sayre Spartan Holiday Classic Thursday night in Lexington.

    Anderson had one final chance when Erik Newton drove the length of the court then passed to Seth Carmichael on a wing but Harlan County blocked the shot.

    Harlan won the round-robin affair with Anderson finishing second. Somerset upset Sayre for third place in the tourney.

  • Kentucky will eventually win the war, but Louisville will take Friday's battle

    Let's get right to the point: Louisville will win this year's edition of nuclear warfare – or maybe after last year, that should be hand-to-hand combat – Kentucky style.

    But Kentucky is the better team with more upside.

    In other words, Louisville will win Friday's battle, but Kentucky will win the war or will be around a bit longer in March.

    Just some observations about this year's edition of the Cats and Cards.
