    The Rockets (1-4) were limited to just 23 percent shooting from the field and 15 percent from three-point range by the Titans (3-1), who posted four double-digit scorers on the offensive end of the court, while shooting 45 percent from the floor itself.

  • Changes coming for jail

    Some changes are on the horizon for the Shelby County Detention Center, with new technology and an increase in booking fees.

    At Tuesday night’s meeting, magistrates approved Jailer Darrell Cox’s request to purchase a body scanner that he said is badly needed.

    “They [scanners] will be like the ones you see at the airport,” he said. “We can see if they’ve got drugs or weapons hid on them – anything.”

    Cox said the scanners, which employ X-ray technology, are perfectly safe to use.

    After a first-quarter littered with self-inflicted mistakes caused SCHS to trail 18-9 into the second quarter, the Rockets were forced to play catch-up throughout and just could not muster enough offense late to pick up the win.
