  • Getting close is not enough

    Even though Anderson County basketball has never believed in the idea of moral victories in the Glen Drury era, the veteran Bearcat coach saw an upside in the Bearcats 47-43 loss to district rival Collins on Friday night.

    “The positive is that it was close,” Drury said.

    Drury was not alluding to a newfound satisfaction of being within a missed 3-point shot in the closing seconds from tying a heavy favorite. Not when he favors quotes from Red Auerbach, Vince Lombardi, Bobby Knight and the like.

  • Bearcats to take on regional foes

    Anderson County will see where it stands against two of the Eighth Region's better teams in the coming week when the Bearcats take on Owen County and North Oldham.

    At Owen County on Friday night, Jan. 14, the smallish Bearcats will run into perhaps the Eighth Region's tallest team, led by 6-foot-5 junior Sawyer Williams, one of the region's top players.

    A three-year starter, Williams figures to give an Anderson team with little inside experience fits inside. However, the Rebels are inexperienced at guard.

  • No classic for Lady Bearcats...

    LEXINGTON – There was little classic about Anderson County’s performance in Saturday’s Martin Luther King Classic.

    Bryan Station went on  a 9-2 spurt to open the game and never trailed as the Lady Defenders whipped Anderson County 53-45 at Paul L. Dunbar High School. Bryan Station was in control for 32 minutes as it improved to 12-1 on the year. Anderson fell to 10-5.

  • Lady Bearcats out to clinch...

    Anderson County has played some of Kentucky's best girls' basketball teams since the season began six weeks ago but Saturday afternoon, the Lady Bearcats will host their biggest game of the year, so far.

    That is a way to describe the showdown with unranked Collins, despite the of the Lady Bearcats having already played six games against teams ranked in the Rating the State Top 20 that appeared in Monday's Lexington Herald-Leader.

    “It is really a big game,” says Anderson coach Tony Kays. “It is a seeding game.”

  • A good return

    Anderson County's varsity cheerleading squad made quite a return to the regional competition sponsored by the Kentucky Association of Pep Organization Sponsors.

    Entering the KAPOS competition for the first time in several years, the Anderson cheerleaders placed second in the Medium Varsity division in the Eighth Region competition, held Saturday at Shelby County High School. Grant County won the competition for squads with 14-18 members.

  • Anderson grapplers can't...

    Anderson County wanted to know how it would stack up against regional competition but the weather had other ideas.


    The Bearcats won two of three matches in the Region 2 Duals last Friday night at John Hardin High School but were unable to return to the action on Saturday because of Friday night's snow and the resulting hazardous driving conditions.

  • Student-athletes or NBA Lite?

    It looks like Enes won't ever be freed.


    Well, at least not long enough to wear a Kentucky basketball uniform. That, of course, is all that most people in these parts care about.


    You know all about Enes Kanter, the young man from Turkey who wants to play basketball for the University of Kentucky. I am told he could score like Dan Issel, rebound better than Kenny Walker, make James Lee look like a softie and, for all I know, could simply reach up to hang another championship banner at Rupp Arena, no ladder needed.
