    The Shelby County boys’ basketball team finally overcame its six-game losing streak on Monday night, routing North Bullitt 67-43 in the opening round of the Mike Miller Classic at Spencer County High School.

    The Rockets (1-6) offense was more efficient than it had been up to this point in the season, getting easy buckets in the paint to open up outside shots.

  • Collins wins nail-biter over...

    The play of Collins’ freshman point guard was the difference in its 78-75 win over Adair County on Monday afternoon in the opening round of the Warren East Holiday Hoops Classic.

    Dayvion McKnight, just a freshman, took control of the game late and set up the game winner.

    “We just had guys make plays,” Collins coach Chris Gaither said. “Dayvion had some plays called for him at the end. He drove and kicked to Charlie [Cochran] in a big spot and [Cochran] picked up the basket and-one.”

  • Shelby’s skid reaches five...

    The Shelby County girls’ basketball team’s tough luck continued on Saturday night, with a 57-48 loss to a formidable South Oldham team.

  • Spencer holds off ice cold Shelby

    A poor shooting night from the floor combined with allowing second-chance opportunities at the basket led to Spencer County defeating the Shelby County girls’ basketball team Tuesday night.

    The Bears (3-2) limited the Rockets (2-3) offensive opportunities to hand Shelby its third loss in as many games.

    “We have to follow our game plan,” SCHS coach Jason Holland said. “We have some younger kids who are still learning, and it’s a lot to take in right now.”
