Oxford routs MA for 10-0 start

The Oxford boys basketball team used a familiar formula to run its win total to double digits Saturday night. The Chargers turned their pressurized defense into runouts and knocked down shots inside and out in their half-court offense to improve to 10-0 with a 69-40 rout of Marshall Academy in the final game of the “O” Town Showdown at the Oxford High gym. Lafayette lost both of its game in the “O” Town Showdown. (December 14, 2014, Page 4B)

          Rebels, TCU set to make history in Peach Bowl

          Ole Miss is about to put its name in records books forever. But the Rebels would also like to be known as the team that won a historic game rather than one that simply played in it. That’s what the No. 9-ranked Rebels will try to do on New Year’s Eve when they take on No. 6 TCU in the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl in Atlanta. It will be the first-ever New Year’s Six bowl game played as part of the new postseason format with the birth of the four-team College Football playoff and the death of the Bowl Championship Series. (December 11, 2014, Page 6A)

              Blue Devils run past J.Z. George in home opener

              WATER VALLEY – Water Valley’s boys basketball team was too fast for J.Z. George. It was a small taste of the kind of frenetic pace opponents will have to deal with this season from the Blue Devils under first-year coach Larry Taylor. Water Valley applied full-court pressure after every made basket, greeted every ball handler with a trap at half-court, and turned every miss by J.Z. George into a race to the other end, overwhelming the Jaguars in a 73-30 rout Tuesday night in its home opener at the WVHS gym. (December 10, 2014, Page 2B)

                    STARKVILLE — Oxford didn’t finish the drill. A rallying cry that was born out of the championship disappointment of a season ago carried Oxford all year.
