  • Anderson rolls through Shelby

    Too big, too fast, too strong.

    These are the only ways to put into words what Anderson County girls’ basketball did to Shelby County on Monday night in the opening round of the 30th District Tournament.

    Anderson led from the opening tip-off, only increasing its lead through the rest of the game and heading to the district championship game on the back of a 66-29 win over the host Rockets.

    I arrived in London by air from Dinard, Brittany on May 18, 1958. It looked clean, orderly and green from the air.

    A late run in the final minutes of the fourth quarter gave Collins girls’ basketball the push it needed to overcome a scrappy Christian Academy-Louisville team on Friday night.

    Starting at the 5:36 mark of the fourth quarter, the visiting Titans, holding a five-point lead, outscored the Centurions 10-6 behind a suffocating defense to hold on for a 57-42 win to close the regular season.

  • Collins whips CAL to close season

    Collins boys’ basketball put its offensive firepower on full display at Christian Academy-Louisville Friday night, blowing out the Centurions 73-40 and handing CAL its 11th consecutive loss of the season.

    Led by senior forward Nick Fort’s 19-point, seven rebound performance, the Titans jumped on CAL (6-20) beginning in the second quarter and did not let the home team get comfortable on either end of the floor for the rest of the contest.

  • Shelby’s comeback bid comes up short

    Shelby County boys’ basketball’s comeback bid at home against a visiting Gallatin County came up just short on Friday night, falling by a one-point margin to a very talented Wildcats team, 49-48.

    After a slow first half on both sides of the ball, Shelby (6-21) showed up to dominate in the back two quarters of play, with the Wildcats only able to muster a total of 14 points in the second half.

    The Rockets’ offense improved following a tough first half, but a nine-point fourth quarter ended up just shy of a win in the 8th Region loss.
