  • ONLINE EXTRA: Lady Bearcats...

    The Anderson County girls' basketball team continued its stellar play with a 47-34 win at Mercer County last Tuesday night.

    While the perception is that Anderson is dominated by young players, it was the upperclassmen – senior Kara Yeaste, junior Caroline McDowell and sophomore Sydney Brown – that led Anderson to one of its most impressive wins of the season. The trio score all of Anderson's first half points as the Lady Bearcats went on a 13-5 spree in the second quarter to take control.

    The Lady Cats led 22-15 at the break.

    LEXINGTON – Anderson County put up a big-league fight, but Paul L. Dunbar had too many weapons. Dunbar pulled away from a 28-28 tie early in the third quarter to post a 70-60 win over Anderson in girls' basketball action on Friday night.

    Dunbar star Ebony Rowe, a Middle Tennessee signee, dominated the second half, relentlessly crashing the boards and patrolling the middle of Dunbar's zone press. Rowe finished with 20 points.

    “When we tied it, she just put them on her shoulders and carried them,” Anderson coach Tony Kays said.
