100 years of basketball: Wins over Anderson still vivid for Western fans

-A A +A
By John Herndon

Helen Turner does not hesitate when asked about her best sports memory from her lifetime of love of Western High School.
“Oh, when we beat Anderson High,” she says with a laugh. “I won't ever forget that.”
It actually happened twice, in the 1982 and 1983 30th District Tournament semifinals.
None was sweeter than the Eagles' 72-59 win over the Bearcats in 1982. Western took control of that one early and never trailed, whipping the Bearcats on their home court.
