  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL: No. 2 E-...

    LEXINGTON – After his team had pulled the mild upset over No. 1 Anderson County in the championship game of the Republic Bank Classic last Monday, Tim Mudd, coach of No. 2 Elizabethtown, was quick note what the prestigious title meant.

    Very little.

    “There is still a lot of basketball to be played between now and the end of February,” Mudd said.

  • COLUMN: Plenty of sports...

    I can't really tell you the best Christmas present I ever got.

    That electric football game – Packers vs. Colts – I got when I was nine years old has to rank near the top.

    Over the years, I have gotten my share of gifts that would mean little to most people but are etched in my mind because of the circumstances surrounding them. There have been a few books on that list. It is a list that includes some photos and even a pair of socks that I knew meant more to the person who gave them than they did to me.

  • BASKETBALL: Bearcats get glimpse...

    The Anderson County boys' basketball team might have gotten a glimpse of what it could be Friday and Saturday in the Kentucky Bank Challenge, held at Rowan County High School.

    The Bearcats whipped a pair of eastern Kentucky teams, including Saturday's win over East Ridge, considered a darkhorse contender in the 15th Region. The Bearcats also came from behind with defeat Pikeville on Friday.

    Against East Ridge, the Bearcat defense was dominant in an impressive 59-45 win.

  • BASKETBALL: Early Anderson blitz...

    Anderson County needed this one.  No question.

    Living dangerously all season and seeing three of their first four games go down to the wire, the Bearcats welcomed a 67-34 romp past visiting Louisville Brown last Tuesday.

    Austin Cummins led the way with 23 points, 19 coming in the first quarter, when the Bearcats started putting together a 29-0 run that put things in order very quickly.

  • BASKETBALL: Harvey's...

    Anderson County overcame deep foul trouble, then pulled away in the second half for a 64-42 win over visiting Danville in boys' basketball action last Monday night.

    Darius Harvey came off the bench to score a career-best 23 points and pull down 10 rebounds. Harvey was perfect on 10 field goal attempts.

  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL: Lady...

    LEXINGTON – 'Twas the Saturday before Christmas and all over the floor, Anderson County's Lady Bearcats made another opponent quite sore.

    This time, it was a 69-44 pounding of 12th Region favorite Southwestern, a team that like Anderson, came into the second-round game of the Republic Bank Classic with a 7-1 record.

  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL: Lady...

    It was simply an Anderson County avalanche.

    The Lady Bearcats exploded with 22-0 run that spanned the first and second quarters that powered them to a 72-49 30th District win over visiting Shelby last Wednesday night.

    By the time Shelby crawled from under the onslaught, any hope of a rescue was long gone.

    “Our defense was good and we were able to turn them over some with our press,” Anderson coach Tony Kays said, “and we were taking good shots.”

  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL: Lady...

    Even without the school’s all-time leading scorer in the lineup, Anderson County had more than enough firepower at Oldham County last Tuesday.

    The Lady Bearcats pulled away from pesky Oldham to post a 63-53 win over their Eighth Region foe.

    Anderson was without leading scorer Eriel McKee, who was ailing. Junior Corrin Robinson started in McKee’s absence.
