Chargers run past West Point for first division win

Oxford’s best players stayed on the floor, allowing the Chargers to get back to the style of play to which they’re accustomed. They washed a bad taste out of their collective mouth as a result. Senior forward Shelby McEwen led four double-figure scorers for Oxford as the Chargers routed the Green Wave, 87-62, Tuesday night at the Oxford High gym to pick up their first Division 2-5A victory of the season. The win came four days after Oxford (16-3, 1-1 Division 2-5A) lost its division opener at New Hope, the Chargers’ first setback to a team from Mississippi. (January 21, 2015, Page 1B, 3B)
