Oldham County/Anderson County UpdatesGame tips in Buckner, KY at 7:30 pm.
Oldham (2-0) vs Anderson County (0-1), two of the top 3 ranked teams in the 8th region.
Oldham defeated North Hardin by 16 and Rock Creek Academy (IN) by 30. Travis Henderson with 33 points in the win over Rock Creek; Jackson Gibson with 14 in each of the first two games. Oldham shooting over 50% from the field, but struggling at the line in the early games.
Anderson gets the 6'5" senior center Christian Gritton back tonight, but he hasn't been practicing but about a week. We'll see how that ankle fares. Cobe Penny, is, of course, Cobe Penny....how Oldham chooses to defend him will be interesting.
