  • Lady Bearcats sputter, still win...

    It was supposed the basketball version of a tuneup, but the Anderson County girls’ win over South Oldham last Tuesday had more than its share of sputtering.

    To be sure, the Lady Bearcats were never in trouble, to which the 66-42 final tally would attest. But at times, more than Anderson coach Clay Birdwhistell would like, it was more like a pre-season scrimmage than a tuneup for what could be a lengthy tournament run.

  • Garmon lifts Bearcats to...

    John Paul Garmon buried a 15-foot jump shot as time expired in overtime to lift the Anderson County High School boys' basketball team to a 68-66 win over Spencer County in the semifinal of the 30th District Tournament Tuesday night.

    Anderson had led 66-63 after Dylan Harper hit 3-of-4 free throws in the final minute but Spencer's Jamie Newman buried a 3-pointer with 6.7 seconds left in overtime to tie things. Anderson did not call timeout and Garmon drove to the Anderson free throw line to launch his game-winner as time expired.
