  • Rockets rally but fall short in...

    The 2010-11 Shelby County boys’ basketball season will likely be remembered as the first of “the split.”

    Friday night the Rockets’ six seniors nearly sent themselves out with a memorable victory.

    Shelby County rallied back from a 6-point deficit to start the fourth quarter, then dramatically forced overtime before falling to Gallatin County, 60-54, at Mike Casey Gymnasium.

  • Rockets, Titans: No. 4 means...

     

    Ding, ding, ding, it’s time for Round 4 of Collins vs. Shelby County.

    Their boys’ basketball teams will meet for the fourth and final time, this season at 7 p.m. Thursday night in the 30th District Tournament semifinals at Spencer County.

    Unlike the previous three meetings, though, this is a winner-take-all match-up between the Titans (17-10) and the Rockets (4-23). The victor will have its ticket punched into the 30th District final on Saturday as well as next week’s 8th Regional Tournament.

  • Another late rally comes up...

    The Collins boys’ basketball team closed out its regular season with another close call (surprise!).

    This time, though, the Titans’ comeback came up short.

    Collins, which had made a habit of come-from-behind victories in its late-season four-game winning streak (two of which came in overtime), fell behind early at Woodford County. But this time the Titans couldn’t complete the rally, falling, 58-55.

  • Girls' game: Anderson...

    TAYLORSVILLE – The Shelby County girls' basketball team's season came to an end Tuesday night, but as far as Rockets Coach Mike Sowers is concerned, it was merely the foundation for the future.

  • Shelby County beats Eminence

    TAYLORSVILLE - Seventh-grader Justus Martin scored 17 points and grabbed 17 rebounds to lead the Shelby County girls’ basketball team to a 46-30 victory over Eminence on Monday night in the opening round of the 30th District Tournament at Spencer County.

    The Rockets fell behind by 6 points, 9-3, late in the first quarter before rallying behind Martin. She finished the first half with 11 points and 11 rebounds as fourth-seeded Shelby led the fifth-seeded Warriors 20-18.

  • A 3-point first quarter dooms...

    The Shelby County girls’ basketball team couldn’t overcome another slow start Tuesday night.

    Host Western Hills outscored the Rockets, 17-3, in the first quarter on its way to a 54-29 victory.

  • 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.
