  • Disastrous starts again scuttles...

    A disastrous start sunk the Shelby County girls’ basketball team Wednesday.

    The host Rockets were outscored by Owen County, 31-0, in the first quarter on their way to a 61-20 loss in the consolation semifinals of the Max Performance Girls’ Invitational.

  • The first victory is a sweet one

    Finally.

    The Shelby County boys’ basketball team picked up its first victory of the season Tuesday night.

    The host Rockets topped Harlan, 59-48, in the first round of the Max Performance Boys’ Invitational being played at Mike Casey Gymnasium to end their season-starting, 10-game losing streak.  

    “We got the monkey off our back,” first-year Rockets Coach Rick Parsons said. “I’m happy for the kids. They worked hard and deserve this. I’m glad for them.” 

  • Late misses, miscues doom Titans

    The Collins boys’ basketball team ran out of homecourt magic Wednesday night.

    The Titans won their first eight games in their new home – including a double-overtime thriller last week – before falling to Muhlenberg County, 51-46, in the semifinals of the Max Performance Boys’ Invitational.

    Collins (8-4), which faced Shelby County on Thursday afternoon in the third-place game, had a chance to advance to the tournament’s championship game but just couldn’t overcome the Mustangs (9-2), the defending 3rd Region champs.

  • Second half dooms Titans

    Frigid shooting and a torrent of turnovers were too much for the Collins girls’ basketball team to overcome Tuesday night.

    The host Titans were outscored, 28-16, in the second half in their 45-33 loss to Danville in the first round of the Max Performance Girls’ Invitational.

    “We didn’t play hard coming out in the second half,” said Collins Coach Phillip Conder, whose team was tied with the Admirals 17-all at intermission. “We’ve got to want to go win the game and tonight I don’t think we wanted to go win the game.

  • Rockets get points, not victory

    Beechwood broke out early to beat the Shelby County girls’ basketball team Tuesday.

    The Tigers outscored the host Rockets, 17-4, in the first quarter on their way to a 68-44 victory in the first round of the Max Performance Girls’ Invitational at Mike Casey Gymnasium.

  • Unemotional start, emotional...

    The Shelby County boys’ basketball team didn’t get to bask in the glow of its first victory for very long.

    The Rockets were rocked by Rock Creek (Ind.), 68-57, in the semifinals of the Max Performance Boys’ Invitational on Wednesday night at Mike Casey Gymnasium. 

    The Lions (5-2) led Shelby County, 14-2, at the end of the first quarter and 39-14 at halftime.

  • Elzy's long shot, defense...

    A big shot and a big defensive effort in the second half carried the Collins boys’ basketball team Thursday.

    Tavis Elzy’s buzzer-beating 3-pointer that ended the first half combined with the Titans’ passion to play D lifted them to a 73-56 victory over archrival Shelby County in the third-place game of the Max Performance Boys’ Invitational at Collins.

    Elzy’s 3-pointer – from about 25-feet out – gave Collins a 6-point lead at halftime, 41-35, after the Rockets had just trimmed the Titans’ advantage to three.

  • Titans' turnovers lead to...

    All Collins girls’ basketball Coach Phillip Conder could do was shake his head both during and after his team’s loss Wednesday.

    “I’m at a loss [for words],” Conder said after his team lost to Bishop Brossart, 53-37, in the consolation semifinals of the Max Performance Girls’ Invitational at Shelby County. 

    The Titans turned over the ball 29 times, most coming in the first half, when they dug themselves a 31-14 hole.
