    While players from Collins and Shelby County’s basketball teams may have enjoyed the extended time off from inclement weather, the coaches from both schools say the break could not have come at a worse time.

    Thanks to several inches of snow and some incredibly poor timing on the part of the weather, both Shelby County and Collins’ basketball teams have had nearly a week off since last competing, and the break could not have come at a better time for all four teams.

    When it comes to the Rockets and Titans girls’ teams, both units have experienced injuries to key pieces throughout this season, and it has affected each squad’s ability to compete for seeding in the 30th District Tournament coming late in February.

  • Collins, Shelby square off in...

    With the final scheduled meetings between both Shelby County and Collins girls and boys basketball teams tonight at Collins fans are in for big show.

    Both games should be highly competitive contests as the Titans and Rockets are continuing to jockey for higher seeding in the 30th District tournament, which will kick off in late February.

  • Shelby County’s rally falls short

    Despite a valiant second half comeback effort, Shelby County boys’ basketball could not find a way to put away district foe Anderson County Friday.

    After scoring no points in the first quarter and six points as a team in the second frame, the Rockets (2-12) came out of the halftime break trailing 22-6 but with a more up-tempo style of offense, and it paid dividends as SCHS gave the visiting Bearcats (5-8) all it could handle.
