  • Shelby stuns Bearcats on last-...

    Shelby County's Eric Schreiner banked in a desperation 3-pointer as time expired to lift the Rockets to a 55-54 win over Anderson County in 30th District play Wednesday night.


    “We did everything we could to prevent a three without fouling and he hits one like that,” sighed Anderson coach Glen Drury. “It was bad luck. That is the only way you can explain it. I have never been around so much bad luck in one season.”

  • Things changed, but stayed the...

    Forget that the old Anderson County-Shelby County rivalry was supposed to have died. Forget the fact that Collins High took most of Shelby's athletes when the new school opened in August.


    None of that will matter when Shelby visits Anderson tonight, Wednesday, Feb. 2. There won't be a Sweet 16 berth on the line. It won't even decide the top dog in the 30th District, like the old rivalry did.


    But tonight is simply the most important basketball game of the season for the Anderson County boys’ basketball team.
