  • Kentucky takes fight to Hoosiers...

    Indiana went on a 13-0 run early in the second half, then held off a spirited Kentucky rally to post a 94-82 win at Conseco Fieldhouse in Indianapolis on Saturday night. 

    Indiana All-Americans Cody Zeller, headed to Indiana University, Branden Dawson (Michigan State) and Marquis Teague (Kentucky) led the Hoosiers to their third consecutive sweep in the series. Louisville Western's Ryan Taylor, who has committed to Louisville, but has not qualified yet, paced Kentucky with 24 points.

  • All-Star coaches remember past...

    When one takes a look at Jason Booher's meteoric rise to the top of the high school basketball coaching ranks, it is hard to imagine his first game with everything riding on it.

    Go back to Feb. 23, 1999. Anderson County was playing Henry County in the semi-final round of the 30th District Tournament at Shelby County High School.

  • Meet a Kentucky All-Star: Jordan...

    When the Kentucky All-Star selections were made public back in April, there was one name that stood out: Jordan.

     

    Not like Mike, but as in Jordan Gilbert, a point guard from Mason County.

     

    It was not that Gilbert can't play. He can, and will be for Transylvania University next winter.

  • BOYS BASKETBALL: For All-Stars,...

    The first indication that the Kentucky-Indiana All-Star Classic is not like any other all-star game came before one entered Anderson County High School for Monday’s scrimmage.


    There were a couple of cars with Indiana license plates in the parking lot.


    “Oh, I am sure they had someone here,” Anderson County coach Glen Drury said after the Kentucky All-Stars routed a team made up of some of Kentucky’s best juniors, 107-78.

  • COLUMN: Making Memories

    There are times in this business something just stays with you.

    Many, perhaps most, would deem the particular moment insignificant, but for some reason, you just remember.

    One of those times in my 26 years of pecking out copy came two years ago this week. I was in the crowded media room of Bellarmine University's Knights Hall. Indiana's Mr. Basketball, Jordan Hulls was talking about how much it meant to him to be able to play in the Indiana-Kentucky summer series.

    (That is what they call the 71-year-old classic north of the Ohio River, you know.)

  • Loving what he is doing

    Anderson County Middle School’s baseball team had one of its most successful seasons ever. At the helm, in his fourth season as head coach, Graham Carlton has been enjoying the ride.

    His reasons for coaching are simple yet sincere. “I coach for three reasons: I love kids. I love to help kids improve at what they do. And I’m addicted to competition, particularly the part that involves winning,” he says.

  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL: Brown to...

    Anderson County's Sydney Brown, a rising senior, will get to test her game against Kentucky's best Wednesday night.

    Brown, a 6-foot-1 center, is scheduled to be a member of the Kentucky Junior All-Stars girls' team that will scrimmage the Kentucky All-Stars as they prepare for their summer series with Indiana.

  • British are coming for soccer...

  • Lady Bearcat softball camp dates...

    Campers will be divided into age groups when camp begins.
    Concessions will be available.

  • New's team takes title

    Kelsey New, of Anderson County, is a member of the Louisville Outrage softball team this summer. The team opened play with a championship in the USFA Knockout 16-and-under tournament, held in Brandenburg over the weekend. The team went 5-0 to take the tournament title.


    Earlier this summer, New had been named to the 30th District All-Tournament team as a member of the team at Anderson County High School.
