  • Buzzer-beater dooms Shelby

    WINCHESTER - Cardinal Vinny Zollo banked in a three at the buzzer to defeat Shelby County 52-49 Friday night.

    The Rockets (11-4) trailed George Rogers Clark 47-42 with 3:30 to play in the fourth, unable to stop strong center Corey Rogers to open the quarter. But Shelby's quick transitions took Clark by surprise, and regained the lead with a Darryl Hicks layup. Then Rogers fought his way to the basket to tie the game at the 1-minute mark.

  • West triumphs in county battle

  • Eastern tops Shelby 46-42

    Shelby County couldn't mount a comeback against visiting Eastern, losing 46-42 Saturday night.

    The Lady Rockets' poor shooting, both from the field (12 of 48) and at the line (12 of 26) did more damage than the Eagles. Shelby played with as much scrappy intensity and speed as Eastern (8-6).

    Down by 10 points at halftime, Shelby spent the second half whittling the deficit. They came within three points of Eastern twice within the final minute of the game, on a Leeara Cardwell free throw and then again on a Shayla Bolin free throw.

  • Shelby carries early lead to...

    Shelby's tenacious full-court press led to a 20-point lead at halftime, which the Rockets (11-3) carried to a 74-56 win against visiting Western Hills (7-6) Tuesday night.

    The game was at times sloppy -- 20 plus turnovers for each team -- but Shelby maintained a controlled offense except for a lapse midway through the second half. The Rockets' lackluster play going into the fourth quarter let the Wolverines within 12 points. Then Shelby's aggressive play emerged again, and the Rockets pulled ahead.

  • Rockets defeat Bearcats in final...

    Boomer Beckley's layup with 44 seconds remaining in the game helped Shelby County defeat Anderson County 32-30 at home Friday night.

    In the remaining time, Bearcat Jacob Russell missed a shot from 3-point range, and teammate Will Ruggles missed from the low post. The rebound from Ruggles' shot ended in a jump-ball tangle with possession going to Anderson with 5.2 seconds remaining.

  • Lady Rockets top Spencer 48-34

    Dee Dee Davis' 3-pointer sparked a 9-0 run for the Lady Rockets to break at tie at 25, and Shelby County went on to defeat visiting Spencer County 48-34 Monday night.

    The Lady Rockets built their second-half lead with a combination of pushing the floor and an effective full-court press. Shelby also made 19 of 25 free throws, taking all but four of those in the second half.

  • Rockcastle wins Lady Rocket...

    Tournament MVP Sara Hammond's double-double led Rockcastle County to a 43-38 victory over Shelby County in the Max Performance Lady Rocket Invitational championship game. Rockcastle had beaten Shelby (3-6) by nearly 30 points earlier this month.

    Hammond, a 6-foot-2 junior, made key blocks and grabbed several rebounds down the stretch as Shelby tried to rally after Rockcastle's 6-0 run into the fourth.

    Shelby had led 24-21 going into halftime on a run of their own led by Taylor Shaw's 3-pointer and low bucket, as well as Dee Dee Davis' two free throws.

  • Shelby girls advance to the...

    Owen County's last-second shot to force overtime was off the mark, and Shelby County came away with a 41-39 win in Monday's first round game of the Max Performance Lady Rocket Invitational.

    The Lady Rockets will play Barren County at 7:45 p.m. Tuesday in the semifinal round.

    With 17.6 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter, Lady Rebel Hannah Neeley hit a three to make the score 37-36. But Shelby's Aaliyah Wells threw a long inbounds pass down court to Marissa Raisor, who made the layup and was fouled. Raisor hit the foul shot to complete her three-point play.
