    The Shelby County girls’ basketball team used big second and third quarters Tuesday night to post its fourth victory in its past five games.

    The Rockets outscored host Collegiate, 31-16, in the middle two periods on their way to a 58-44 victory in Louisville.

    Shelby County (8-5), coming off a 52-24 victory over Kentucky Country Day, fell behind the Amazons (7-5 after the loss) early.

  • Flyers soar past Rockets’ early...

    The Shelby County boys’ basketball team played one of its better halves of the season Tuesday night.

    Unfortunately for the Rockets, Franklin County played like one of the better teams in the 11th Region in the second half to beat Shelby County, 78-54, at Mike Casey Gymnasium.

  • SCHS, Collins girls split 2...

    The Shelby County girls’ basketball team bounced back from one of its most lopsided losses of the season with its biggest victory of the season this past weekend.

    The Rockets fell at Woodford County, 76-43 on Friday night but rebounded with a 52-24 victory over visiting Kentucky Country Day on Saturday evening.

    WOODFORD COUNTY 76, SCHS 43:The host and hot-shooting Yellowjackets (11-5 after the victory) hit 11 3-pointers to sting the Rockets by 33 points (which matched the deficit of Shelby’s season-opening 51-18 loss to Collins).

  • SCHS girls, Collins boys finish...

    Collin Kessinger and Michael Troutman led their respective swim teams to fourth-place finishes Saturday in the 2012 Lake Cumberland Winter Invitational in Somerset.

    Kessinger, a junior at Shelby County, was victorious in two events to lead the Rockets girls’ team, and Troutman, a sophomore at Collins, won one event to top the Titans boys’ squad.

    Meanwhile the Collins girls’ team finished fifth, and the Shelby boys’ squad took eighth.

  • Cold-shooting Rockets flame out...

    It was a weekend of some frustration and a little celebration for the Shelby County boys’ basketball team.

    The Rockets dropped a pair of home games, losing to Beth Haven, 63-52, Friday night then falling to Beechwood, 72-61, Saturday night in the inaugural Tom Creamer Classic.

    It was unseasonably warm outside Friday night, but it was chilly inside Mike Casey Gymnasium for the Rockets, who shot just 24.3 percent in the loss to the Bearcats (12-2 after the victory).

  • 2nd-quarter hole too deep for...

    A sluggish second quarter cost the Collins girls’ basketball team Friday night.

    Visiting Anderson County outscored the Titans by 12 points in that period on its way to an 11-point victory, 51-40, over Collins in a key 30th District game that decided the top two seedings in next month’s tournament.

    “We dug ourselves too big of a hole,” said Titans Coach Phillip Conder, whose team trailed by nine points at halftime and couldn’t get closer than six in the second half.  

  • 3-pointer at buzzer ends Titans...

    Another boys’ basketball game between Anderson County and a team from Shelby County, another last-second, game-winning 3-pointer.

    You can add Friday night’s game between the Bearcats and host Collins to a list that already includes the 2009 8th Region final, when Anderson County beat Shelby County on C.J. Penny’s buzzer-beater, and last season’s Shelby County-at-Anderson game, which ended with Eric Schreiner’s improbable bank-in.

  • Creamer to be honored with event...

    Shelby County will honor former boys’ basketball coach Tom Creamer on Saturday.

    The man who guided the Rockets to the 1978 state championship will be on hand throughout the day at the inaugural, and aptly-named, Tom Creamer Classic.

    The festivities will begin with a game involving a travel team that Creamer’s grandchildren play on, then will continue at 3:30 p.m. with a boys’ game between Brown and Kentucky Country Day.

  • Post New Year’s fizzle for Titans

    It wasn’t the way Phillip Conder wanted to ring in the New Year.

    Conder’s Collins girls’ basketball team was slammed by visiting South Oldham, 65-32, Tuesday night, the third day of 2012, in a match-up of 8th Region heavyweights.

    The Titans posted a season-low point total and gave up the most points to an opponent in a regulation game, while losing their second game this season – and fourth in a year – to the Dragons.
