One of the Oxford Lady Chargers’ preseason goals was to capture the Division 2-5A Tournament title. Despite a second straight regular season title and a perfect overall record to be proud of, the victory the Lady Chargers wanted most came Friday with an 83-52 triumph over West Point in the 2-5A title game.
A year after losing to West Point on the road and having to play a first-round Class 5A playoff game at Clarksdale, the Lady Chargers took care of their business in grand fashion with the one-sided victory, their third over the Lady Green Wave this year.
For Alexus Malone, who led the team with 22 points and 14 rebounds in the win, capturing the title at home was especially sweet because she was unable to help the team in the playoffs due to an injury last year. (February 13, 2012, Page 1B)
