    Anderson County jumped to a 16-4 lead after a quarter then continued to build the margin on the way to a 68-16 win over visiting Eminence on Friday night.

    However, the victory could have been costly as freshman Eriel McKee, who led Anderson with 14 points, suffered what was thought to be a strained knee ligament early in the third quarter. McKee dressed for Saturday's game with Collins but did not play.

    Twelve different Anderson players scored as they remained unbeaten in district play and moved to 11-5 on the season.

    Even though his team stood at 6-7 through last weekend's games, Anderson County boys' basketball coach Glen Drury believes his team can still make some noise toward a successful season.

    “When we started, we never thought this would be a year when we would have a high (won-loss) record,” he said after Monday's practice. “We are really after being a good post-season team.”
