Jones, OHS overwhelm Clarksdale in playoff opener

Late in Oxford’s MHSAA Class 5A second-round playoff game Saturday night, Cortez Jones took an outlet pass from teammate Josh Gibbs on the wing in transition. He could’ve tried to beat the only defender in front of him to the rim, but Jones set himself behind the 3-point line and drained another shot instead. Oxford’s senior guard was in the zone. Jones scored from every spot on the floor and had a career night once he was done, finishing with a game-high 27 points and helping the Chargers advance to this week’s state quarterfinals with a 76-57 victory over Clarksdale in their final home game of the season. Oxford (26-4) will play Wayne County in the quarterfinals Thursday morning at 9 at Jackson State University. (March 1, 2015, Page 1B, 4B)

Once Oxford’s boys basketball team stopped thinking and started playing, there wasn’t much Lafayette could do to slow the Chargers down. Oxford turned an early seesaw affair into a rout by turning smothering defense into instant offense in an 80-42 victory over the rival Commodores at the Oxford High gym on Friday night that kept the Chargers unbeaten. Their 11-0 record matches the best start to a season in coach Drew Tyler’s 18-year tenure. Lafayette High’s girls team beat the Lady Chargers 50-47 (December 21, 2014, Page 1B, 2B)

Oxford, Laurel ready to air it out for title

Fans attending the MHSAA Class 5A state championship game better find a comfortable seat inside Mississippi State’s Davis Wade Stadium. They could be there a while. A lot of big plays — and a lot of clock stoppages — are in the forecast for a game that will be raining drop-backs and deep heaves when Oxford and Laurel square off Saturday night. (December 5, 2014, Page 5A)

A year later, Oxford wants to ‘finish the drill’

CLINTON — Flanked by some of his coaching peers and staring out into a sea of officials, administrators and media members statewide, Oxford coach Johnny Hill let everyone in on what may be the worst kept secret in Mississippi high school football.
