Bragging rights will be on the line tonight for Oxford and Lafayette when the two schools meet on the hardwood in the OHS gym today. The four-game set starts with a junior varsity girls game at 4 followed by a ninth-grade boys game at 5. The varsity doubleheader will begin approximately at 6. This will be the first and only time the two teams play each other this season.
All the games should be well attended, but it’s the girls game between the Lady Commodores (14-4 overall) and OHS (16-1) that is expected to draw the most interest based on the expectations of the two teams.
For Lafayette senior guard Shaquilla Isom, playing Oxford once means just a little bit more than past seasons. (January 18, 2011, Page 8)
