  • Titans can’t compete in middle,...

    Tuesday was supposed to be the night that the Collins boys’ basketball team clinched the No. 1 seeding in the 30th District Tournament.

    But someone forgot to tell Spencer County.

    The visiting Bears spoiled the Titans’ would-be party, beating them, 67-51.

    “We got outplayed on both ends of the floor,” Collins Coach Curtis Turley said.

  • Rain of 3s drown Rockets

    The Shelby County boys’ basketball team got buried under a torrent of 3-pointers Tuesday night.

    Host Christian Academy of Louisville hit nine of them on its way to an 82-53 victory over the Rockets.

    And the first one the Centurions hit was the biggest. Leading Shelby County, 16-9, with 3 seconds to go in the first quarter, CAL quickly moved the ball to midcourt, where Ivan Talley buried a buzzer-beating three.

    “That took a little out of our sails, and it was downhill from there,” Rockets Coach Rick Parsons said.

  • 26-0 deficit too much for Rockets

    The Franklin County Flyers lived up to their nickname Wednesday night.

    They flew out to a 26-0 lead on visiting Shelby County on their way to a 53-19 victory.

    “Franklin is a very talented team,” Rockets Coach Mike Sowers said. “One of the top teams from one of the state’s most talented regions. It didn’t help matters that we did not play well and were a bit beat up.”

  • Cresap commits to Lindsey Wilson

    Branden Cresap quarterbacked the Collins football program to a memorable first season.

    Now he will try to help another program follow up on its fine first season.

    Cresap committed this week to play next fall for Lindsey Wilson College, which recently completed its inaugural season in NAIA, going 5-6.

    “It’s a school on the rise,” Cresap said. “It’s exciting to go build something there. It’s a lot like coming to Collins. It felt like the right fit for me.”

  • Titans quietly turn back Rebels

    Coming off an emotional victory Friday night, the Collins boys’ basketball was ripe for a letdown Saturday.

    However it didn’t happen.

    The Titans topped visiting Casey County, 61-52, Saturday, one night after beating Shelby County.

    “We were happy to get a win,” Collins Coach Curtis Turley said. “The atmosphere was different. It was a smaller crowd than the night before. We didn’t have the pep in our step we would’ve liked, but we did some good things and played well enough to win.”

  • Second-period swoon foils Titans

    The Collins girls’ basketball team beat Anderson County for three quarters Saturday afternoon.

    But the Bearcats used a big second period to beat the Titans, 56-49, in a game that likely will determine the No. 1 seeding in the 30th District tournament.

  • Rockets blast off better but...

    The start was better for the Shelby County girls’ basketball team Monday night, but the result was the same.

    The Rockets began their game against Owen County better than their previous game – and their previous meeting with the Rebels – however they still fell, 69-16, at Mike Casey Gymnasium.

  • Chargers top Titans

    Host Bullitt East outscored Collins 7-4 in the fourth quarter for a 30-28 victory Monday night.

    The two teams were tied at 8-all at the end of the first quarter and 16-all at halftime before the Titans (9-8) outscored the Chargers 8-7 in the third period to take a 24-23 lead.

    However they couldn’t hang on against Bullitt East (14-5), arguably the second-best team in the 6th Region. 

  • Titans’ ‘best start’ overpowers...

    There are good starts, there are great starts, and then there is the kind of start that the Collins girls’ basketball team had Friday night.

    The Titans scored the first 30 points of the game, while holding host Shelby County without a field goal for the first half, on their way to a 55-10 victory at Mike Casey Gymnasium in the third meeting between the two teams this season.

  • Titans use their reserves to run...

    Some people call them reserves.

    Curtis Turley calls them reinforcements.

    In practice they call them the “black” team.

    Friday night they were one of the big reasons for Collins’ 76-57 victory over archrival Shelby County at Mike Casey Gymnasium.

    Three members of the Titans’ second unit, plus two starters, keyed a big second quarter and eventually their team’s third victory of the season over the Rockets.
