    When Sammy Rogers and Alorra Sims talk about the girls’ high school basketball season in Anderson County it has to be music to Lady Bearcat fans’ ears.

    The only returning starters for the Lady Bearcats, Rogers and Sims give Anderson an unusual senior combo that can not only create matchup issues for the opposition, but totally fits their different personalities.
