  • Raiders too much for Rockets

    Visiting Iroquois used a huge second half to hand the Shelby County boys’ basketball team its 11th loss in a row Tuesday night.

    The Raiders outscored the Rockets 49-21 after intermission on their way to a 78-47 victory in Mike Casey Gymnasium.

    Senior forward Keion Goff scored a game-high 23 points to lead four in double figures for Iroquois (9-7), which led 29-26 at halftime. 

    Goff tallied 12 points in the first quarter, when the athletic Raiders repeatedly went to the offensive glass on their way to outscoring Shelby 19-7.

  • Marshall’s 27 leads Titans over Bears

    Collins beat the Bears 76-63 Dec. 29 in the Nelson County Classic. That game didn’t count toward the 30th District standings. Tuesday night’s game did.

    Showing off its new-found penchant for passing, the Shelby County girls’ basketball team proved victories aren’t just a passing fancy for the Rockets anymore.

    Playing some of its best, and most unselfish, basketball of the season Shelby County annihilated Iroquois, 63-30, Tuesday night at Mike Casey Gymnasium to triple its victory total from last season. 

  • Hornback’s Senate territory grows north

    Shelby County’s state senator is going to be covering a few more miles this term.

    The redistricting plan passed Wednesday by the Senate extends the District 20 served by Sen. Paul Hornback (R-Shelbyville) from three counties to the south of Shelby to a long swathe of northern and western counties.

    In fact, the map looks like most of the territory covered by the 8th Region in high school basketball.
