  • Deep-shooting Male holds off Collins

    A pair of cold streaks on both ends of the floor during the first and third quarters squandered an otherwise solid performance in Collins 65-59 loss at Male Tuesday.

    Halfway through the first quarter, the Bulldogs (10-9) started to get hot, which left the Titans (17-7) struggling to adjust.

    “On the scouting report coming into this game, only one of their guys was shooting at a good percentage for the year,” Titans coach Chris Gaither said. “Some of their guys just hit some game-changing shots.”

    SCHS (5-18) found itself down 75-72 with 49 seconds remaining in regulation with an opportunity to tie the game.
    But a forced turnover by the Panthers (7-17) took the wind out of the Rockets’ sails and sent Shelby home with another loss.

    But the most important feature in the home is one that never changed.

  • Collins makes late run for district title

    Thanks to a late rally that saw the Collins boys’ basketball team’s resiliency tested, the Titans (17-6, 5-0 district) can now add the 30th District Championship to its resume.

    The win did not come easily though, as Anderson County made Collins fight for every point, especially during the late stages of the 62-59 win.

  • Shelby dominates Atherton, 69-20

    There is no other way to describe Shelby County’s 49-point win over Atherton on Monday night other than pure domination.

    The Rockets (9-14) raced past the Rebels (10-15) on both ends of the floor, forcing Atherton to commit numerous turnovers and scoring easy baskets in transition.

  • Rockets furious rally falls short to Rebels

    The Shelby County boys’ basketball team got off to a slow start to begin the second half against Atherton, and that cold streak likely cost the Rockets a win in the 67-62 loss on Monday.

    Atherton came out of the break on fire, reeling off a 16-5 run to begin the third quarter and putting SCHS in a 48-29 hole.

    After a timeout, the Rockets would answer with a 10-0 run to close the quarter and the gap, and trailed 48-39 going into the fourth.
