  • 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.

  • 5th Region power too much for Titans

    The John Hardin boys’ basketball team showed why it was the last unbeaten squad in the state Saturday night.

    The Bulldogs used superior quickness, inside muscle and some carelessness by Collins to take down the host Titans, 69-53.

    "They're very quick. It was tough to stop their penetration," Collins Coach Curtis Turley said. "Then offensively we hurt ourselves even on defense because we got in too big of a hurry and turned it over, and with their speed, they were able to score off our mistakes."

  • Rockets’ Homecoming ruined by hot-shooting Colonels

    The Shelby County boys’ basketball team was buried by a barrage of 3-pointers Friday night.

    Oldham County’s Dylan Henderson put on a one-man shooting display in the first quarter, hitting six of those 3-poiners, to lead the Colonels to a 70-52 victory on Shelby’s Homecoming at Mike Casey Gymnasium.

    Henderson finished with seven 3-pointers and 33 points. He tallied 20 points in the first period, when Oldham outscored the Rockets, 33-9.
