Unselfish play is what Drew Tyler loves about his Oxford Chargers. In a 78-57 win over Ashland that improved their record to 5-1 on the year, the Chargers finished with 20 assists overall as a team, and five players scored at least nine points, led by Shelby McEwen’s season-high 24-point effort.

Oxford’s rally against an experienced Hernando team came up short Monday night in the OHS gym. The Lady Chargers fell behind by as much as 10 but came back to tie it two times in the final 20 seconds only to fall 64-63 to the Lady Tigers. (November 19, 2013, Page 7)
Oxford coach Drew Tyler wanted his team to buy into being a good defensive team before the season started. His hopes were realized in the opener against Calhoun City Tuesday night as the Chargers rallied to post a 58-54 win over the Wildcats. (November 13, 2013, Page 8)

History can often times find a way of repeating itself. In the case of Oxford High girls basketball senior Alexus Malone, back-to-back years of season-ending torn ACL surgeries helped her become an invaluable team leader and one of the best players in the state. (more…) (April 10, 2013, Page 1B)
CANTON — Oxford’s well designed game plan was executed by the Lady Chargers the way coach Shayne Linzy was hoping for three plus quarters Tuesday night. Unfortunately for the Lady Chargers, the overall size and athleticism of the Canton Lady Tigers was too much to overcome in the end. (more…) (February 20, 2013, Page 6)
NEW HOPE — The goals of winning the Division 2-5A Tournament title for the second straight season and earning a home playoff game Tuesday in the Class 5A playoffs didn’t materialize like Oxford Lady Chargers were hoping Friday night. Although OHS battled the New Hope Trojans down to the end and fared much, much better than the first meeting in the NHS gym, the Lady Chargers fell in the title game 64-58.
The third time this year the Oxford Lady Chargers flexed their collective muscle against an overmatched West Point girls basketball team on Tuesday. Even without two players, OHS cruised past West Point 79-37 in Game 1 of the 2-5A Tournament at New Hope High on Tuesday.
The Chargers, meanwhile, had to claw and scratch their way to Friday’s championship game by sneaking past pesky Saltillo 62-60. (February 13, 2013, Page 6)
