2-4A tourney loss caps winless season for ‘Dores

As forgettable a season as it’s been for the Lafayette High boys basketball team, the Commodores just needed one win to extend their season. But their Division 2-5A tournament opener ended just like all the others. Lafayette’s season came to an end Wednesday with a 57-50 loss to New Albany at the Lafayette High gym. It was the 14th time the Commodores (0-14) took the court, and it was the 14th time they came up on the short end of the scoreboard. (February 19, 2015, Page 6A)

Oxford moves to 11-0 with rout of ‘Dores

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 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)
