  • Titans kick off winning streak

    Collins girls’ basketball has shed its losing streak from the late stages of 2017 in a big way, going on a four-game winning streak and edging out South Oldham and Jeffersontown in a pair of contests on Thursday and Friday, respectively.

    The Titans used size and dominant rebounding to frustrate a talented J-Town team Friday, pulling down 37 boards while point guard Olivia Federle went white-hot from the field with a season-high 31 points.

  • Oldham crushes Rockets

    Shelby County boys’ basketball saw what it takes to compete with the top of the 8th Region on Friday night, as the Rockets faced a strong Oldham County team and took a lopsided 76-32 loss.

    “Oldham [County] did a good job of pressuring us and turning us over then converting on the other end,” Rockets coach Ken Cates said. “They have the ability to go on big runs, and they did that to us early.”

  • Titans pull away late to top...

    While the first half of Tuesday’s contest between Collins boys’ basketball and visiting Woodford County was close, the second half was significantly less so, with the Titans using its shooting and ball movement to make a late scoring push for a 61-41 win over Woodford.

    The Titans (15-4) used seven made three-pointers from Jacob Feltner, who led all scorers with 23 points and 52 percent shooting from the field in the second half as a team to pick up the lopsided win over the Yellow Jackets.

  • Franklin County tops Shelby in OT

    While Shelby County boys’ basketball’s offense responded to a guard-heavy change in lineup on Wednesday night, it was not enough to top Franklin County on the road, as the Rockets fell in overtime to the Flyers, 74-69.

    “We played much better than we have the last two weeks,” Rockets coach Ken Cates said. “We needed to shake up the starting lineup so we went with a more guard-oriented lineup.”

  • Titans pick up win at Gallatin...

    A strong offensive push in the third quarter led by guards Jeian Hayes and Olivia Federle allowed Collins girls’ basketball to rally from behind on the scoreboard and eventually top host Gallatin County on Wednesday night for a 61-48 win and snapping a five-game losing streak in the process.

    The pair of Collins guards combined for 17 points in the third quarter alone, with Federle totaling 20 points to lead all scorers and Hayes adding 18.

  • Rockets fall to Western Hills,...

    A slow start combined with missed free throw opportunities against a visiting Western Hills team left Shelby County girls’ basketball searching for answers on Tuesday night, as the Rockets took a 59-47 loss to the Wolverines.

    Raydriana Stoudemire led Shelby (4-15) in scoring with 15 points, with 10 of her points coming in the third and fourth quarters combined to help try and spark a comeback bid that ended just short of its goal.

  • Shelby drops heartbreaker to...

    Shelby County girls’ basketball dropped a buzzer-beater to visiting Moore Monday.

    With time expiring in the fourth quarter and the two teams tied at 43, Mustangs forward Stacia Hayes stepped through the lane and delivered a floating layup that found the bottom of the net as time expired, handing the Rockets the narrow two-point loss.

  • Titans win pair of weekend games

    Collins boys’ basketball picked up a pair of impressive wins over the weekend, with victories against Valley on Friday night, and a win over 8th Region contender Simon Kenton on Saturday morning.

    The Titans hot weekend continued on Saturday afternoon, as Collins defeated a very talented Simon Kenton squad while shooting 50 percent from both the field and behind the arc.

  • Valley pounds Shelby, 82-48

    Shelby County boys’ basketball took a rough loss at the hands of Valley on Saturday afternoon as the Vikings came away with the 82-48 win over the Rockets.

    Valley (10-7) jumped out to a huge lead behind a pair of 20-plus point quarters, as SCHS struggled to slow the Vikings.

    By half the Vikings had tallied 51 points thanks to senior guard Damont Walter’s 16, he would finish with a game-best 18 points.

  • Bearcats run through Collins

    A late run in the first quarter of Friday night’s district matchup between Collins girls’ basketball and Anderson County left the Titans in a hole they could not match.

    Both teams were knotted at 11 with 2:09 left in the opening frame when the Bearcats (13-4) ended the quarter on a 9-0 run.

    The 20-11 lead then continue to grow in the second quarter and beyond as Anderson’s runs continued to mount.

    The Bearcats went on to coast to a 65-45 win over the Titans (6-11), dropping Collins to 2-3 in district play this season.
