  • Titans take pair of tough losses...

    As the season rolls along, Collins boys’ basketball’s schedule kicked into another gear as the team took a pair of losses to highly-talented St. Xavier (14-9) and Bullitt East (13-12) teams on Friday and Saturday respectively.

    “If you take our last two weeks of the season, it is more challenging than most teams will play,” Titans coach Chris Gaither said. “Each game you can win if you execute on both ends of the floor extremely well but if you don’t then you can get beat. We want our kids to know this going into postseason play.”

  • Titans hold off Male in...

    A late defensive stand and a strong performance from Collins boys’ basketball’s bench players added up to a 54-51 win over a visiting Male on Tuesday night.

    With 3.7 seconds remaining and 52-51 lead, Titans’ point guard Dayvion McKnight forced a huge turnover, edging Male’s Tyren Moore out of bounds and giving Collins an extra possession.

    On the ensuing inbounds, McKnight was fouled and hit both of his free throws.

    A desperation three from the Bulldogs ended in an airball and a win for the Titans.

  • Collins extends winning streak...

    The Collins girls’ basketball team grew its winning streak to four games Tuesday night, as the team traveled to Nicholasville and handed West Jessamine a 14-point loss, 58-44.

  • Titans roll through Rockets in...

    Collins boys’ basketball used ball movement and hot shooting to stymie a Shelby County comeback effort Saturday and rolled to a 4-0 record in district play this season as a result.

    “We wanted to reestablish our identity as far as sharing the basketball goes,” Titans coach Chris Gaither said. “Marcellus Vail and Nick Fort led our team in assists tonight, so it was good to see those guys making plays for others.”
