  • Thriller 2: Titans take it to the bank

    The last-second heroics carried over for the Collins girls’ basketball team from Friday night to Saturday evening.

    From there, Collins, which rallied back from a double-digit deficit in regulation, pummeled the Patriots, 71-58, in the Dairy Queen Classic at Mercer County.

  • Cardwell makes another big shot in easier victory

    CRESTWOOD – The Collins girls’ basketball team didn’t need a last-second shot to win Monday afternoon’s game against Jeffersontown or even to send it into overtime. However, a buzzer-beating 3-pointer at the end of the third quarter didn’t hurt.

    Leeara Cardwell made that shot, and the Titans beat the Chargers, 58-48, in the first round of South Oldham’s Lady Dragon Invitational.
