  • Titans edge out North Bullitt for Thursday win

    A great team can come away with a win even when not being its best, and Collins boys’ basketball did just that on Thursday night in the 64-63 win over North Bullitt.

    Collins shot 45 percent from the floor, including just 25 percent from three, but the effort by senior forward Nick Fort was enough to allow the Titans (4-2) to pick up the win by a razor-thin margin.

    Fort hit eight of 12 shots from the floor and scored a game-high 18 points in the victory. He added 11 boards for the double-double.

  • Stone’s shot lifts Shelby over KCD

    While it took four full quarters of action for Shelby County boys’ basketball to secure its first three-pointer of the game on Tuesday night against Kentucky Country Day, Rockets senior guard Kyion Stone came through with the shot from behind the arc when it mattered.

    With five seconds remaining in a 47-all game and the ball in the Rockets’ possession, the Wildcats signaled for a timeout to set up its defense.

    In the process, the short break gave SCHS (2-4) time to formulate a simple but effective strategy.

  • Slow start dooms Shelby County Tuesday
