  • Oldham holds off Collins at region

    When Jacob Feltner’s three cut Oldham County’s lead to 61-57 with less than two minutes remaining in the Titan’s 8th Region Tournament opener Thursday, it looked like the Collins boys’ basketball team had another rally left.

    Instead, it was Oldham County and guard Jackson Gibson that took charge down the stretch in the 68-61 Oldham win. The Colonels’ victory was payback for last season when the Titans knocked Oldham out in the 8th Region opener on the way to the title and a birth in the Sweet 16.
