  • Titans edge out North Bullitt...

    A great team can come away with a win even when not being its best, and Collins boys’ basketball did just that on Thursday night in the 64-63 win over North Bullitt.

    Collins shot 45 percent from the floor, including just 25 percent from three, but the effort by senior forward Nick Fort was enough to allow the Titans (4-2) to pick up the win by a razor-thin margin.

    Fort hit eight of 12 shots from the floor and scored a game-high 18 points in the victory. He added 11 boards for the double-double.

  • Stone’s shot lifts Shelby over...

    While it took four full quarters of action for Shelby County boys’ basketball to secure its first three-pointer of the game on Tuesday night against Kentucky Country Day, Rockets senior guard Kyion Stone came through with the shot from behind the arc when it mattered.

    With five seconds remaining in a 47-all game and the ball in the Rockets’ possession, the Wildcats signaled for a timeout to set up its defense.

    In the process, the short break gave SCHS (2-4) time to formulate a simple but effective strategy.

  • Madison Central holds off Collins

  • Slow start dooms Shelby County...

    Early turnovers by Shelby County girls’ basketball led to easy baskets for Spencer County at the other end of the floor and put the Rockets in a bind early on Tuesday night in Taylorsville.

  • Collins defense smothers Shelby

    A strong, consistent zone defense and an evenly distributed offensive attack was enough to allow Collins boys’ basketball to upend Shelby County on Friday night, by a score of 55-32.

    The Rockets (1-4) were limited to just 23 percent shooting from the field and 15 percent from three-point range by the Titans (3-1), who posted four double-digit scorers on the offensive end of the court, while shooting 45 percent from the floor itself.

    Iceman earned the win and finished one shot ahead of second-place finisher Frank Bensel.
