  • Anderson edges past Collins

    Despite holding a 28-23 lead over Anderson County at the half on Tuesday night, the Collins High School girls’ basketball team could not come away with its first victory of the season.

    The Collins High School boys’ basketball team is now on a two-game winning streak after going on the road and defeating Franklin County 70-54 on Tuesday night.

    The Titans’ (2-1) disruptions on the defensive end of the floor led to some confusion for the Flyers (2-1), as Franklin struggled to establish offensive consistency.

    “We created 19 deflections and 18 steals for the game,” Collins coach Chris Gaither said. “Our length can really bother people if we use our feet to stay in front and have active hands.”

    Offense came at a premium when Shelby County girls’ basketball traveled to Louisville to take on Assumption on Tuesday night, as the two teams combined for just 63 points.

    The contest was a defensive struggle with the two teams shooting low percentages due to some excellent defensive efforts.

    “Defensively, we were really good,” SCHS coach Jason Holland said. “We forced 27 turnovers and held them to 24 percent shooting.”

    “We really played well in the third quarter,” the coach said. “We got what we wanted on offense, and executed well on defense.”

  • Titans drop a pair of games over...

    The Collins High School girls’ basketball team dropped two games on as many nights over the weekend, bringing the Titans record to 0-3 early in the season.

    “Saturday was a quick turnaround against another very good team,” Titans coach Sean Pigman said. “We were competitive, but kind of ran out of gas. We didn’t shoot the ball well, but our kids have never quit and understand these tough games and schedule will pay off if they keep working.”

  • Titans split back-to back over...

    The Collins High School boys’ basketball team split a pair of games over the weekend, to open the season 1-1.

    The Shelby County girls’ basketball team picked up its first victory of the season in a dominating fashion over Fairdale, 67-35.

    Despite picking up the win by an impressive 32-point margin, head coach Jason Holland saw improvements that need to be made in the Rockets’ (1-0) play.

    SCHS committed 19 turnovers in the win, but Holland chalks some of the mistakes up to an alignment error and some eagerness during the first game of the year.
