  • 7th-grader Martin (17 points, 17 rebounds) powers Rockets

    TAYLORSVILLE – Justus Martin has had to grow up quickly for the Shelby County girls’ basketball team this season.

    Monday night Martin, a 6-foot seventh-grader, put her maturing game on display in the opening round of the 30th District Tournament at Spencer County, scoring 17 points and grabbing 17 rebounds to lead the fourth-seeded Rockets to a 46-30 victory over fifth-seeded Eminence.

  • Good effort, good start but 3-point burial

    Shelby County trailed by just six early in the second quarter before the Panthers hit a flurry of 3-pointers. With her team leading, 22-16, junior forward Sheree Brown hit the first of five 3-pointers to help the Panthers to a 39-23 lead.

    Frankfort, which hit 10 3-pointers in the game, outscored the Rockets, 35-8, in the second half.

    Shelby County rallied back from a 6-point deficit to start the fourth quarter, then dramatically forced overtime before falling to Gallatin County, 60-54, at Mike Casey Gymnasium.

  • Rockets, Titans: No. 4 means more

    Unlike the previous three meetings, though, this is a winner-take-all match-up between the Titans (17-10) and the Rockets (4-23). The victor will have its ticket punched into the 30th District final on Saturday as well as next week’s 8th Regional Tournament.
