  • Cann goes from underdog to happy...

    LEXINGTON – Basketball has been good to Makenzie Cann. Real good.

    It’s given her the chance to travel – she was in Missoula, Mont., and Pullman, Wash., over the weekend on a road trip with her University of Kentucky teammates – and she has shown her game nationwide on ESPN.

    She’s gotten to play the game in the NCAA Tournament just 30 miles from home.

    To many, it would seem like a dream, but reality has staggered Cann more than once. She’s gotten up stronger every time.

  • McKee a different player, person...

    MOREHEAD – There might not be a better story of the good things college sports can be than Eriel McKee.

    She smiles at the observation.

    Tears nearly always appear when a team is eliminated from post-season competition.

    They’re usually more prominent when that team cares.

    And tears were flowing when Anderson County met for its final post-game meeting last Friday night.

    The Bearcats had just taken heavily-favored Madison Southern to the brink in a game that was not decided until Madison Southern intercepted a pass in the Eagle end zone with 44 seconds to play.
