The New Hope Lady Trojans secured the Region 1-5A title Friday with a 67-46 victory at Oxford High on Friday.
Oxford’s press, led by Alexus and Kyla Malone up front and a bevy of guards in the back, led the Lady Chargers to another one-sided win over the weekend. OHS jumped out to a 19-0 lead and didn’t allow Southwind to score until the 2:50 mark of the first quarter en route to a 69-40 win Saturday night in the annual Coach “C” Shootout in the Lafayette gym.
A night after the Lady Chargers (8-2 overall) defeated Amory 63-11, they wasted little time using their press to take down the visitors from Memphis. (December 10, 2012, Page 2B)
Oxford rebounded from its loss to Tupelo Tuesday night in the OHS gym with a convincing 68-45 win over Charleston. Keyed by a decisive run in the first half, the Lady Chargers (6-2 overall) showed balance on offense and defense in the victory over the Lady Tigers.
OHS coach Shayne Linzy said it was good to see his team overcome an early seven-point deficit and then put the loss to Tupelo, which ended a five-game winning streak, behind them. (December 5, 2012, Page 6)
Grenada’s girls basketball team must have felt thinner after they left the Oxford High gym Thursday night thanks to the pressing Oxford’s Lady Chargers gave them. Utilizing a new 2-2-1 press on defense, Oxford dismantled Grenada 71-28 in a game that was very reminiscent of last year for an OHS team that routinely got up big on teams and pounded them into submission before halftime. Oxford wasn’t as fortunate in the nightcap as Grenada won the boys’ contest 68-55. (November 9, 2012, Page 6A)
