    A strong defensive effort allowed the Rockets (8-20) to officially close its season on a two-game winning streak, as SCHS topped Williamstown by seven points on Saturday.

  • Titans split tough slate

    A tough late stretch of games for Collins boys’ basketball continued over the weekend, as the Titans (19-8) split a pair of games against DeSales and Doss as the regular season winds down and the postseason begins.

    The Titans fought tooth-and-nail to try and overcome Doss on Saturday night, but the Dragons found a way to overcome its opponent in the overtime period.

  • Rockets defeat Henry County

    After a tight halftime score saw Henry County leading Shelby County boys’ basketball by one-point, the Rockets took control of the second half on the way to a 71-65 win over the visiting Wildcats on Friday night.

    A smaller lineup, boasting four and even five guards at a time, gave Henry trouble, as the visiting team struggled to keep up with the speed and elusiveness of the Rockets.

  • Owen tops Collins

    A rough second quarter for Collins girls’ basketball came back to haunt the Titans in its Saturday trip to Owen County, as the host team came away with the 53-47 win.

    Collins (11-15) could only muster five points in the second, being outscored by six points in that frame alone, 11-5.

    Combine that an injury to its main interior presence in Mary-Clare Megibben after halftime, and the two factors ended up contributing to the six-point loss to the Rebels (16-8).

  • Colonels edge Titans, 55-51

    Too many errant passes along with a slack interior defense equaled a Collins girls’ basketball loss on Tuesday night against visiting Oldham County, extending Collins’ losing streak to three games.

    The Titans failed to convert on several opportunities late, after center Mary-Clare Megibben hit a putback shot right under the basket to cut the Colonels lead to 55-51 with 37.5 seconds remaining.

  • Oldham comes from behind to top...

    If Tuesday’s matchup between Collins and Oldham County is a preview of the upcoming 8th Region tournament, it’s going to be a fantastic postseason.

    The contest came down to the final possession, with the visiting Colonels escaping with the victory, as Oldham’s Branden Dewitt made a pair of clutch plays to seal the win.

    Down 46-45 to the Titans (18-7) with 6.9 seconds remaining, Dewitt sliced his way inside the paint and hit a contested layup from the right side of the basket to give his team a one-point lead.

  • Shelby County stomps Waggener,...

    Shelby County girls’ basketball picked up a much-needed victory in spectacular fashion, dominating a quality Waggener team on Tuesday night.

    Thanks to a highly efficient offensive game from sophomore guard Kayla Bruner and some solid assist numbers, the Rockets (6-20) blew out the Wildcats by 15 points and snapped its five-game losing streak in the process.

  • Rockets drop final district game...

    Spencer County’s perimeter defense gave Shelby County boys’ basketball fits in a 30th District matchup, as the Rockets struggled to muster offensive success on Tuesday night and snapped their three-game winning streak.

    The Rockets ended the night with just one player, T.J. Robinson, in double-figures in scoring, as the team turned in first and third quarters of action in which it scored fewer than 10 points in each frame.

  • Manning The Fort

    While some of the main contributors may have changed for Collins boys’ basketball from last season, the results have only improved.

    Led by senior forward Nick Fort, the Titans currently sit at a 18-6 for the year and look primed to make another run at the KHSAA State Basketball Tournament in early March.

    Fort says that the experience provided by last season’s playoff run and the program’s first ever tournament win over Elliott County has shown the team what is required to make another state title bid this season.

  • Rockets sweep weekend match-ups

    Shelby County boys’ basketball may have found its rhythm over the past few games, earning its first winning streak of the season and winning each of its past three contests.

    The Rockets defeated a visiting Central Hardin (14-8) team on Friday night, before traveling and beating Ryle (8-15) on Saturday afternoon.
