PARIS, Ky. – Anderson County overcame a six-point deficit in the fourth quarter to defeat host Bourbon County, 63-56, in boys’ high school basketball action Sunday night.
The Bearcats trailed 43-37 with just over 5:00 to play. After surviving Bourbon’s Ameryon Blackburn’s last second shot, the Bearcats prevailed in overtime.
Bourbon had held the ball for nearly 90 seconds and through timeouts by both teams. Blackburn fired from just beyond the three-point arc, but his attempt clanged off the rim as time expired.
