Oxford’s knack for playing its best basketball in the postseason and winning division tournament titles under coach Drew Tyler continued Friday night as the Chargers knocked off West Point 71-61.

Oxford boys, girls cruise in Round 1

The Oxford boys and girls basketball teams could not have gotten their postseasons started much better than they did on Tuesday at the West Point gym.

While it took the girls a quarter and a half to really get going during their 57-35 victory over the New Hope Lady Trojans in the first round of the District 2-5A Tournament, the Chargers took it to Saltillo from the opening tip and turned a 22-point halftime lead into a 75-39 victory.

Both Oxford squads were No. 1 seeds. (February 9, 2011, Page 9)

Oxford earns sweep of Senatobia

Oxford fans at the OHS gym on Tuesday saw two very different games from the Chargers and Lady Chargers against Senatobia.

While both squads won, it was the boys that claimed a run-away 74-57 victory, while the girls had to hold on and knock down free throws at the end to claim a 48-41 win. (November 17, 2010, Page 6)

Oxford teams sweep Potts Camp

A team-first attitude for the Oxford Lady Chargers and Chargers proved to be the difference in two wins over Potts Camp in the season openers for both teams Monday night in the OHS gym.

Oxford’s girls opened the season with a one-sided 78-36 win over the Lady Cardinals, while the Chargers followed the girls lead in the nightcap as they rolled to a 90-49 win. (November 9, 2010, Page 8)
