  • Shipley named Academic All-...

    For the first time in 38 years, the College Sports Information Directors of America named a Murray State University football player an Academic All-American.

    Shelbyville-native Zach Shipley earned the honor last Thursday as a second-team member of the all-academic team.

  • Collins drops pair of weekend...

    Battling illness and injury bugs over the past two games has taken a toll on Collins girls’ basketball, as the Titans fell to North Bullitt on Thursday night and Walton-Verona in its home opener on Monday.

    Without one of its top scorers in Trinity Warfield (12.4 points per game), the Titans struggled to make shots in a nine-point defeat at the hands of the Bearcats.

  • Broncos pressure Shelby for win

    Shelby County boys’ basketball continued its tough slate of opponents to open the season, with two losses to Frederick Douglass High School and Monroe County on Saturday and Monday nights.

    Frederick Douglass 56, Shelby County 44

    A strong third quarter effort by the Broncos proved to be the difference in the Monday night matchup between Frederick Douglass and Shelby County.

    The Broncos (3-4) outscored the Rockets (2-6) by a 21-7 margin in that third frame alone, breaking open what was a relatively close game up to that point.

  • Titans edge out North Bullitt...

    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.

  • Rockets fall at South Oldham

    The Shelby County girls’ basketball team’s rough start to the season continued over the weekend, in a pair of losses to Anderson County at home on Thursday and at South Oldham on Saturday.

    With one player out with injury in point guard Macie Gowin and center Kaitlyn Disch on limited duty with an illness; the Rockets struggled to close over the final two quarters against the Dragons on Saturday.

  • Stone’s shot lifts Shelby over...

    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.

  • Madison Central holds off Collins

    Playing one of the state’s top 15 teams is always tough challenge, but the Collins boys’ basketball showed Tuesday that it belongs in the conversation in a close loss to Madison Central.

    The Indians (5-0) came out the victors over the Titans (3-2) behind a strong first half effort that saw Madison pull out a 64-58 win when it was all over.

  • Slow start dooms Shelby County...

    Early turnovers by Shelby County girls’ basketball led to easy baskets for Spencer County at the other end of the floor and put the Rockets in a bind early on Tuesday night in Taylorsville.

    A quick 8-2 deficit left Shelby searching for answers, as the Bears rode the early advantage out to a 15-point district win, 68-43.

  • Collins tops Western Hills on...

    With its first win of the season in the bag on Friday night, Collins girls’ basketball is on a three-game winning streak after a pair of victories on Saturday and Monday night against Dunbar and Western Hills respectively.

    Collins 59, Western Hills 47

    The Titans played solid defense and jumped out to a double-digit first half lead, riding the early momentum to a win at Western Hills on Monday night.

  • Collins defense smothers Shelby

    A strong, consistent zone defense and an evenly distributed offensive attack was enough to allow Collins boys’ basketball to upend Shelby County on Friday night, by a score of 55-32.

    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.
