Collins senior forward Ralphie Stone earned all-8thRegion honors last season as the sixth man for the basketball team. Tuesday night Stone picked up where he left off.
Stone scored a game-high 24 points in reserve, sparking Collins to a 64-46 victory over visiting Gallatin County in the season-opener for both teams.
“Ralphie was a big difference-maker for us,” Titans Coach Chris Gaither said.
So was Collins’ defense, which held the Wildcats to 29.6 percent shooting (8 of 27).
