  • Bearcats upset Florida power in McCreary tourney

    Something clicked for Anderson County basketball last week.

    No, Anderson did not win the Arby’s/KFC Classic at McCreary Central High School. Far from it. The Bearcats split four games and still were looking at a 3-4 record heading into last night’s game against Lexington Sayre.
