Oxford teams advance in 2-5A Tournament

The third time this year the Oxford Lady Chargers flexed their collective muscle against an overmatched West Point girls basketball team on Tuesday. Even without two players, OHS cruised past West Point 79-37 in Game 1 of the 2-5A Tournament at New Hope High on Tuesday.
The Chargers, meanwhile, had to claw and scratch their way to Friday’s championship game by sneaking past pesky Saltillo 62-60. (February 13, 2013, Page 6)

Oxford earns sweep of Hernando

Oxford’s basketball teams earn a sweep of Hernando on the hardwood Tuesday night. The Lady Chargers defeated the Lady Tigers 66-50, while the Chargers beat the Tigers 57-52 in the nightcap. Hernando led the Lady Chargers 23-17 in the first quarter but that lead was erased in the second  a much better defensive effort that saw the Lady Tigers only score seven points. Oxford led 36-30 at the half and then added 13 and 17 points in the third and fourth compared to 20 total points for Hernando after the break. Alexus Malone led the 3-1 Lady Chargers with 31 points and 11 rebounds.

Amber Sisk also had 15 points, while Aliyah Herod had seven steals and four assists. The Chargers won their first game of the season to improve to 1-2 on the year. Ty Madkins led Oxford with 13 points. Josh Gibbs had 10 points, while Cortez James and Will O’Keefe each scored nine points.

Different styles produce wins for OHS

Both Oxford High basketball squads secured a spot in the MHSAA Class 5A Playoffs next week and a spot in the Division 2-5A championship games with wins over Saltillo at the OHS gym Tuesday night.
The similarities to the two teams’ victories stop there though, as the Lady Chargers cruised to an 83-35 win and the Chargers had to fight off a late run by the Tigers to win 62-55. (February 8, 2012, Page 6)
