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)
