  • Titans come from 17 down in 4th to win

    Curtis Turley’s text message to Collins Principal Anthony Hatchell on Friday night said it all.

    “I told him, ‘You get your money’s worth with us,’” Turley said.

    And then some, lately.

    Just two nights after rallying for an overtime victory over Fairdale, the Titans made an even bigger comeback on their way to a 64-61 victory at Nelson County.

    Collins (16-9) overcame a 17-point, fourth-quarter deficit – the Titans were also down 14 with 1 minute, 46 seconds to play and 10 with 46 seconds left.

  • Tough Tates Creek’s torrid 2nd dooms Rockets

    The Shelby County boys’ basketball team ran into a buzz saw, and maybe one of the best squads in the state, Saturday night.

    The Rockets were routed by Tates Creek, 66-36, in the Shoot for the Cure Classic at Nicholas County.

    “This team might be playing on Saturday night in Rupp [Arena in the state championship game],” Shelby County Coach Rick Parsons said. “I‘ve been watching this bunch play together for last three years. They’re men.

  • Rally sends young Titans to victory

    Youth was served Saturday for the Collins girls’ basketball team.

    Led by a pair of middle-schoolers, the visiting Titans rallied to beat Bardstown, 50-45. Eighth-grade center Mackenzie Raizor had a monster game with 17 points and 16 rebounds, and sixth-grade guard Myah Pace added 11 points.

  • Titans bedeviled by poor shooting

    The Collins girls’ basketball team struggled to find offense, and the basket, Saturday at Henry Clay.

    The Titans tallied single digits in three of four quarters and shot just 27.3 percent on their way to a 39-29 loss to the host Blue Devils.

    “Defense was there. We just missed some shots,” said Collins Coach Phillip Conder, whose team was 12-for-44 from the field and 3-for-8 from the free-throw line.

  • Rockets (1 FG) go down easily

    The Shelby County girls’ basketball team didn’t show its basket much love Saturday in the Duke’s Sporting Goods Valentine’s Shootout.

    The Rockets were held to just one field goal on their way to a season-low point total in their 70-9 loss to host John Hardin.

    “Pretty dismal performance,” Shelby County Coach Mike Sowers said. “We missed some very easy shots early on, then I think frustration set in, and a lot of our ladies just quit looking to score.”

  • Titans bounce back to end skid

    The Collins girls’ basketball team picked up a much-needed victory Thursday night.

    The Titans outlasted Louisville Moore, 49-44, to end a 3-game losing streak as they continued to play without their leading scorer and rebounder.

    “We’ll take the win, I promise you that, after three losses in a row,” said Collins Coach Phillip Conder, whose team once again played without sophomore forward Aaliyah Wells.

  • Mouser’s makes deliver sweet victory

    Before Rebecca Mouser stepped to the free-throw line with the score tied and 1.6 seconds left in overtime Monday night, Collins girls’ basketball coach Phillip Conder called her over and told her a joke.

    Mouser didn’t get it (the joke), but that didn’t matter, because she hit it (her free throw).

    Mouser, a junior forward who had missed all six of her field-goal attempts, then hit the second, even though she tried to miss it, to give the Titans a 49-47 victory over Carroll County.
