Chargers adjusting to time, place for Class 5A quarterfinals

Oxford’s boys basketball team didn’t lose a game in its own gym all season, but the Chargers won’t have the advantage of a home crowd when they take on Wayne County in the MHSAA Class 5A quarterfinals.

The playoffs have shifted to Jackson, where Oxford (26-4) and Wayne County (11-12) will be the first teams to play at Jackson State University on Thursday at 9 a.m. Should the Chargers win, they will move to the Mississippi Coliseum to face either Ridgeland or West Harrison in next week’s semifinals. (March 4, 2015, Page 1B)

Jones, OHS overwhelm Clarksdale in playoff opener

Late in Oxford’s MHSAA Class 5A second-round playoff game Saturday night, Cortez Jones took an outlet pass from teammate Josh Gibbs on the wing in transition. He could’ve tried to beat the only defender in front of him to the rim, but Jones set himself behind the 3-point line and drained another shot instead. Oxford’s senior guard was in the zone. Jones scored from every spot on the floor and had a career night once he was done, finishing with a game-high 27 points and helping the Chargers advance to this week’s state quarterfinals with a 76-57 victory over Clarksdale in their final home game of the season. Oxford (26-4) will play Wayne County in the quarterfinals Thursday morning at 9 at Jackson State University. (March 1, 2015, Page 1B, 4B)
