  • Sub coach starts with victory

    Because of the ejection of head coach Phillip Conder in the Feb. 1 loss to Western Hills, Collins girls’ basketball assistant coach Charlie Matthews got the assignment of stepping in and leading the team against 30th District foe Spencer County on Friday evening.

    For some added pressure, Matthews was without one of the Titans’ better players, senior forward Katie Vogel, who was participating in a singing competition.

    The Shelby County girls’ basketball team bounced back from its worst loss of the season with its “best” game of the season, according to Coach Mike Sowers.

    The Rockets, who trailed by as many as 17 points in the first half and by 16 at halftime, outscored the visiting Flyers, 53-35, in the second half.

  • Collins hosts SCHS with seedings...

    The Collins and Shelby County basketball teams will meet for the second time this season – Mother Nature permitting – Saturday night on the Titans’ home court.

  • No. 3 ‘Rocks don’t roll over...

    SAINT MATTHEWS – The Collins boys’ basketball team hung with the third-ranked squad in the state Wednesday night.

    But the Titans could never get over the hump in the final three quarters against host Trinity. The Shamrocks built a 7-point halftime then held Collins at bay the rest of the way in their 58-52 triumph, which ended the Titans’ 8-game winning streak.

    “The key in the first half was our turnovers,” Collins Coach Chris Gaither said. “In the second half it was just toughness.”  

  • Conder, Titans tossed aside

    The Collins girls’ basketball team followed up its “best game” of the season with its “best quarter” of the season Saturday night against Western Hills, according to Coach Phillip Conder.

    Unfortunately for the Titans and Conder the game didn’t end as well.

    The visiting Wolverines, who trailed by 10 points after the first quarter, rallied for a 61-56 victory. Conder wasn’t around for the ending, though. He was ejected after receiving two quick technical fouls early in the second period.

    “That was the difference in the game,” Shelby County Coach Jason Couch said.
