  • Court report: Feb. 2, 2011

  • Rockets roll early, shot down late

    The Shelby County boys’ basketball team may have surprised North Oldham in the first half Saturday night.

    But a motivated Mustangs’ team didn’t surprise Rockets Coach Rick Parsons. North Oldham, which had sizzling shooting all night long, outscored Shelby County, 19-9, in the third period on its way to a 57-46 victory at Mike Casey Gymnasium.

  • Good half does not equal a good whole

    The Collins boys’ basketball team played one of its best halves of the season Friday night.

    Unfortunately for the Titans it was followed up by one of their not-so-great third quarters.

    Host Bullitt East outscored Collins, 30-11, in the third period on its way to a 78-59 victory Friday night.

  • Titans play close with top team

    The Collins girls’ basketball team went toe-to-toe with the best defensive team in the state and one of the top teams in the 8th Region on Monday night.

    The Titans, however, came up just short – literally – in a 39-37 loss to Owen County.

    Collins had two chances to tie the game in the final 13 seconds, but Aaliyah Wells’ pull-up jumper spun in and out, then Leeara Cardwell’s last-second shot came up slightly short.
