  • Odd season can return to...

    It’s been kind of a strange season for Anderson County basketball.

    The Bearcats entered the season as one of the teams, if not THE team to beat in the Eighth Region. They were a solid choice to make the trip to Rupp Arena for the Sweet 16 in March when I conducted a poll of the region’s coaches for The Cats Pause last summer.

    But when the Rating the State rankings came out in Monday’s Lexington Herald-Leader, the Bearcats were ranked seventh in the region. They were ranked third in the 30th District.

    Anderson place in the top half of teams despite not having competitors in six of the 14 weight classes.
