  • Bearcats split home contests

    There is a reason basketball coaches want experienced players on the floor during close games. Danville showed why during the Admirals 64-56 win over Anderson County last Tuesday.

    After Anderson had completely erased a 12-point halftime deficit and surged ahead 38-36 on back-to-back three-pointers from Dillon Harper with 1:38 left in the third quarter.

  • Lady Bearcats to play in one of...

    The seventh annual South Central Bank/Halton Classic (SCBHC) will feature five teams that won 18 or more games last year with the field including two 30-game winners. The bracket play girls’ basketball tournament will be held December 28-30 at Allen County-Scottsville High School in Scottsville.

  • Swim Cats place second in Shelby...

  • Christian Academy rolls past...

    The Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg boys' basketball team built an early lead, then controlled the action to post a 64-46 win over Bluegrass United Friday in Lexington.

    Josh Smith blistered the nets for 19 points, hitting on 7-of-10 field goal attempts and all four of his free throws.

    As a team, Christian Academy connected on 52 percent of its shots (25-48) in rolling to the win.

    Nathan Bain was a dominant force inside, pulling down nine rebounds while Caleb Hatton distributed three assists.

  • First place winners

    SHELBYVILLE -- .At least it wasn't March.

    That was about the only silver lining for Anderson County’s girls’ basketball team after a disastrous 49-33 loss at Shelby County last Thursday.

  • Penny excited about Mexican...

    All C.J. Penny wanted was a chance to keep playing basketball.

    The Anderson County High School graduate got it last week when he was the 14th draft pick to play in the Chihuahua Basketball League in Mexico. Penny did not know much about the league when he returned to Lawrenceburg last week. He just knows he has a chance to play for play, albeit in the obscurity of a Mexican league.

  • Mat Cats host duals tournament

    The Anderson County High School wrestling team is set to host the inaugural Anderson County Duals on Tuesday, Dec. 29.

    The tournament will feature 12 teams from around the state, including perennial power Cooper. Other teams entered in the tournament include top programs from Central Hardin, McCreary Central and Boyle County.

    The action begins at 9:30 a.m. and is expected to run all day, according to Anderson coach John Griggs.

  • A 3-point shot to make high...

    In those days when my back yard turned into every basketball arena in the nation, the favored places were easily Freedom Hall and the Salt Palace and, of course, Fairgrounds Coliseum in Indianapolis.

    For a while, shooting from that rock about 24 feet from my basket was the elbow on the 3-point line at Convention Center. You probably know that building now as Louisville Gardens. It was where Louie Dampier and Darel Carrier teamed up to give my beloved Kentucky Colonels the most prolific scoring backcourt in all of basketball.

  • Lady Bearcats state their case...

    It is far too early in the high school basketball season to know how things will pan out when tournament time comes around in March, but if there is such a thing as a statement game, Anderson County’s girls might have made one last week.

    Make that might have made three.

    The Lady Bearcats defeated a pair of district foes and in between pummeled an Eighth Region opponent that had been raising some eyebrows in the early-going.
