  • BOYS' REGIONAL BASKETBALL:...

    NEW CASTLE – It all came down to one defensive stop.

    Ross Cox made it and Christian Estes sank two free throws with 2.2 seconds left to give Anderson County a 50-47 win over Owen County in a heart-stopper in the first round of the Eighth Region Tournament Monday night.

  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL: Lady...

    SHELBYVILLE – About the only surprise in Anderson County's 54-26 win over Spencer County in the 30th District semi-final last Tuesday was that the margin wasn't worse.

    Anderson controlled the opening tip, got a 3-pointer from Alex Avritt on its first possession and never looked back as the Lady Bearcats claimed their 20th straight win and improved to 28-1.

    SHELBYVILLE – Every game is different, but Austin Cummins might wish things would turn out like they did last Tuesday every time he steps on the basketball court.

    A sophomore whose status for the post-season was in question just a few days before, Cummins blistered the nets for 36 points and a school record as Anderson County routed Shelby County, 77-37, in the boys' 30th District semi-final at Collins High School.

    The Eighth Region Girls' Basketball Tournament will be held at North Oldham High School for the first time.

  • GIRLS' REGIONAL PREVIEW:...

    It is now down to three games for the Anderson County girls' basketball team.

    Three Eighth Region Tournament games to put an exclamation point on a historic season or to have a bitter ending.

    It is a typical Kentucky February as I write this month’s column. It is actually sunny and 60 degrees, windy and feels more like early April with spring turkey season coming on. I just spent the last hour or so checking game cameras and walking some fence rows in search of antler sheds. The weather feels great today but by “typical Kentucky February” I mean things will change weather wise. 

  • Penny named All-KIAC at Asbury

    Coaches in the Kentucky Intercollegiate Athletic Conference have named Lawrenceburg resident C.J. Penny to the All-KIAC team, according to a news release.

    A freshman at Asbury University, Penny joined the Eagle team after the first semester, scoring 15.8 points and pulling down 6.9 rebounds per game. Penny is shooting 55 percent from the floor, according to the release.

  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL: Never a...

    SHELBYVILLE – There was never any doubt that the Anderson County Lady Bearcats would win their fifth consecutive 30th District championship Friday night.

    Anderson never trailed in a 47-34 win over tourney host Collins, a convincing win over a team Anderson had routed by a combined 59 points that was expected.

    The manner in which the second-ranked Lady Bearcats went about their business was not.

    Layups rolled off the rim. Normally easy shots rattled around the basket before popping out. The Lady Bearcats hit only 4-of-11 free throws.

  • Drury, Smith receive regional...

    Anderson County High School boys' basketball coach Glen Drury was named the Eighth Region's Coach of the Year by the region's coaches while senior Jay Smith has been named to the All-Eighth Region team. 

    Smith is the only Anderson player on the 15-man team. Through the 30th District Tournament, Smith was averaging 17.0 points, 6.9 rebounds and 4.7 assists per game.

    “There is no doubt we are not where we are without Jay Smith,” Drury said.
