  • Rockets dump 13-game slump

    The last month has been rough for the Shelby County boys’ basketball, but Tuesday night those recent frustrations and frowns were replaced by smiles and high-fives.

    The Rockets ended their 13-game losing streak by beating Western Hills, 66-63 at Mike Casey Gymnasium.

    “It feels really good,” senior guard Eric Schreiner said. “It always feels good to win, but especially when you play as a team. Everybody had something to do with this win.”

  • Johnson leads Titans’ rout

    The Collins boys’ basketball team turned up the tempo Tuesday night.

    The Titans took advantage of their opportunities to run as they routed visiting Marion County, 76-46.

    Junior guard Buddy Johnson scored a season-high 19 points – including 13 in the first half – to lead Collins (14-8) to its fifth victory in its past six games.

    It was the third time this season the Titans, who are 9-0 when scoring at least 63 points, have tallied 76 – their second-highest, single-game point total – this season.

  • 4th quarters decide Titans’ fates

    It was a tale of two different fourth quarters for the Collins boys’ basketball team this past weekend.

    Visiting Oldham County outscored the Titans by nine points in the final period on its way to a 58-44 victory Friday night. Then Collins turned the tables on host Christian Academy of Louisville on Saturday night, outpointing the Centurions by seven in the final 8 minutes of its 50-46 victory.

    Collins, which trailed by 15 points at halftime, rallied to beat visiting Oldham County, 57-49.

  • Rockets rebound from blowout

    The Shelby County girls’ basketball continued to demonstrate its development over the weekend.
