  • Rockets buried under a pile of 3...

    The Shelby County boys’ basketball team got swept up under a tidal wave of 3-point shots Tuesday night.

    Host Madison Central hit 14 of them, including six in its big second quarter, on the way to a 92-49 victory over the Rockets.

    “They shot the ball so well,” first-year Shelby County Coach Rick Parsons said of the Indians. “It seemed like we would play pretty good defense, and they’d just knock it down.”

  • A soph helps the seniors...

    The Collins boys’ basketball team sent its seniors out in style Tuesday night.

    The Titans topped visiting Western Hills, 66-54, on their first Senior Night behind 26 points from sophomore forward Dez Marshall and solid efforts from their two seniors. Tavis Elzy collected 16 points and 13 rebounds, and Jake Edwards returned to the starting lineup after missing one game with a sprained ankle to help Collins (17-9) win its fourth consecutive game and finish 13-3 at home in its inaugural season.

  • Titans come from 17 down in 4th...

    Curtis Turley’s text message to Collins Principal Anthony Hatchell on Friday night said it all.

    “I told him, ‘You get your money’s worth with us,’” Turley said.

    And then some, lately.

    Just two nights after rallying for an overtime victory over Fairdale, the Titans made an even bigger comeback on their way to a 64-61 victory at Nelson County.

    Collins (16-9) overcame a 17-point, fourth-quarter deficit – the Titans were also down 14 with 1 minute, 46 seconds to play and 10 with 46 seconds left.

  • Tough Tates Creek’s torrid 2nd...

    The Shelby County boys’ basketball team ran into a buzz saw, and maybe one of the best squads in the state, Saturday night.

    The Rockets were routed by Tates Creek, 66-36, in the Shoot for the Cure Classic at Nicholas County.

    “This team might be playing on Saturday night in Rupp [Arena in the state championship game],” Shelby County Coach Rick Parsons said. “I‘ve been watching this bunch play together for last three years. They’re men.

  • Rally sends young Titans to...

    Youth was served Saturday for the Collins girls’ basketball team.

    Led by a pair of middle-schoolers, the visiting Titans rallied to beat Bardstown, 50-45. Eighth-grade center Mackenzie Raizor had a monster game with 17 points and 16 rebounds, and sixth-grade guard Myah Pace added 11 points.

  • Titans bedeviled by poor shooting

    The Collins girls’ basketball team struggled to find offense, and the basket, Saturday at Henry Clay.

    The Titans tallied single digits in three of four quarters and shot just 27.3 percent on their way to a 39-29 loss to the host Blue Devils.

    “Defense was there. We just missed some shots,” said Collins Coach Phillip Conder, whose team was 12-for-44 from the field and 3-for-8 from the free-throw line.

  • Rockets (1 FG) go down easily

    The Shelby County girls’ basketball team didn’t show its basket much love Saturday in the Duke’s Sporting Goods Valentine’s Shootout.

    The Rockets were held to just one field goal on their way to a season-low point total in their 70-9 loss to host John Hardin.

    “Pretty dismal performance,” Shelby County Coach Mike Sowers said. “We missed some very easy shots early on, then I think frustration set in, and a lot of our ladies just quit looking to score.”
