Lady Commodores’ season ends at Pontotoc

PONTOTOC— All the Lafayette High girls basketball team wanted was a chance. All it wanted was the opportunity to knock off Ponototoc — and the Commodores got one— but Lafayette was unable to hit shots late, and the Commodores fell 44-33 in a second-round matchup  of the MHSAA Class 4A playoffs Monday night in the Pontotoc High School gym. (March 3, 2015, Page 6)

LHS girls keep season alive, beat Greenwood 55-50

After nearly a week-long layoff the Lafayette High girls basketball team finally began their playoff run.

LHS girls fall just short in division title game

It wasn’t the prettiest game you’ve ever seen, but what it lacked in style points it more than made up for with back-and-forth, in-your-face basketball. In the end, it came down to — as so many close games do — the team that made the last play. Saturday night, it was Ripley which got a putback from Dayzsha Rogan 1:12 left to score the winning basket and then it was Rogan who scooted in for a runout layup with seconds to go after a missed free throw by Lafayette to give the regular-season Division 2-4A champion Lady Tigers a 32-29 victory over Lafayette in the 2-4A tournament championship game at the LHS gym. (February 22, 2015, Page 2B)

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)
