I really didn’t know what to expect that night I approached Bobby Keith for some comments.
Keith’s Clay County basketball team had just defeated a very good Anderson County club back in February of 1994.
Clay County was, well, Clay. The Tigers weren’t that far removed from the great teams led by Richie Farmer in the late 1980s. Clay just reloaded and was, as usual, the best team in the mountains. Clay would go on to win the 13th Region that year, the 16th time in 22 seasons the Tigers would be making a trip to the Sweet 16.
