  • 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.

  • Titans sweep Rockets again

    The Collins basketball teams swept their Shelby County counterparts again Friday night.

    The Titans’ boys’ team beat the host Rockets 76-57 behind 25 points from sophomore forward Dez Marshall.

    Meanwhile the Collins girls’ team scored the first 30 points of the game on its way to a 55-10 victory over Shelby County at Mike Casey Gymnasium.

    Collins also swept a doubleheader from the Rockets on Dec. 3.

  • Don’t confuse this oriole with a...

    The Orchard Oriole is only 7.25 inches long with a 9.5-inch wingspan and is the smallest member or the Oriole family, so small they often are mistaken for a species of Warbler.
    The male is not bright orange and black, as is the more well-known Baltimore Oriole, but instead it is a dark red/orange and black, The female is more of a yellowish olive-green bird as show in the accompanying photograph.
    These orioles winter in the tropics, with the males returning in mid-April to Kentucky and begin setting up their territories.

  • A touch of class at SCHS

    For Rick Parsons, this boys’ basketball season could be titled Back To The Basics.

    For Parsons, Shelby County’s first-year coach, the 2010-11 campaign has been as much about teaching as it has been about coaching.

    But that’s what happens when you take over a team with no varsity experience and several players who haven’t played an organized basketball game since middle school.

  • Warriors’ boys complete seasonal...

    The West Middle boys’ basketball completed a regular-season sweep of East Middle on Monday night.

    The Warriors shot down the host Missiles, 37-34.

    “It was a packed house, a great atmosphere,” West Coach Tim Pardee said. “We knew it was going to be a hard game. We knew we had a really good night that first game, and they didn’t play their best.”

    West had used a hot start to beat East, 46-24, in the first meeting between the two teams Nov. 18 on the Warriors’ homecourt.
