An 0-3 week, after starting the year with two wins, wasn’t the goal of the Lafayette Commodores. But when the team’s best player in Brandon Mack isn’t available to help out against the biggest rival and two teams from Alabama, earning wins for the Commodores was a tough assignment.
Lafayette dropped both of its games in the inaugural Mississippi-Alabama Challenge played Friday and Saturday in the Oxford High gym. The ‘Dores (2-3 overall) lost 62-59 to LaFayette (Ala.) on Friday before falling 68-52 to the Yellowjackets of Oxford (Ala.) on Saturday. (December 17, 2012, Page 3B)
