  • Collins to hit road for month of January

    The Collins boys’ basketball team will face by far its toughest test on the schedule when it plays 10 straight games away from home, beginning tonight against Shelby County.

    And the Titans will face most, if not all, of the games without starters Jacob Feltner and Nick Fort, as the duo recovers from injuries.

    Both guards were injured in Friday’s 59-51 win over district foe Spencer County, with both impairments coming during the final minutes of the game.
