Callaway upsets Oxford in 5A North Half tourney

Oxford’s planned run in the MHSAA’s Class 5A North Half tournament came to stop before it really got started Friday night at Jackson’s Lanier High School gym. After playing so well against Clarksdale in the opener of the 5A playoffs, the Lady Chargers were unable to duplicate that effort in a 69-57 setback to Callaway. (more…) (February 21, 2011, Page 6)

    Rams take down OHS in 5A playoffs

    Oxford boy’s basketball coach Drew Tyler pointed out the positives of his Chargers and a season that saw them advance to the Class 5A North Half tournament at Indianola-Gentry. It was hard to be critical of much the Chargers have done the last two weeks of the season even after they lost 61-34 to Jackson’s Provine in the North Half semifinals Friday night.

        Chargers show great effort in playoff win

        The Oxford Chargers haven’t always put forth complete efforts this season. Some nights, their defense was lacking, or they would get beat on the boards because of lackluster effort.

        That wasn’t the case on Tuesday night, as the Chargers completed Oxford’s sweep of Clarksdale by defeating the Wildcats 63-57 in the first round of the Class 5A playoffs. The win advances the Chargers (17-10 overall) to the 5A North Half tournament Friday at Indianola-Gentry, a feat the team did not accomplish last season. (February 16, 2011, Page 6)

          Lady Chargers top Clarksdale in first round

          It wasn’t long after the Oxford Lady Chargers lost to West Point in the Region 2-5A tournament championship last Friday that coach Shayne Linzy was looking forward to Monday’s first round of the 5A playoffs.

          Despite Clarksdale’s overall size superiority and playing away from home, Linzy felt like his team would respond in fine fashion and be a very tough team for the Wildcats to have to defeat. His intuition proved to be right as the Lady Chargers used their speed and stamina to knock off last year’s 5A North Half champion, 54-52, in the first step to advancing to Jackson for the MHSAA state tournament.

            Chargers hold off West Point to win 2-5A title

            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. The win not only secured a 10th championship trophy for Tyler in his 14 years of coaching at OHS, it also ensured a home playoff game Tuesday against Clarksdale a year after the Chargers had to travel to Ridgeland.

              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)

                Chargers’ complete effort leads to title

                The most complete effort of the season on both sides of the court led to yet another division title for the Oxford Chargers Friday afternoon in the regular season finale against West Point.

                Oxford’s 68-49 win over West Point gave the team another regular season title and more importantly earned them the No. 1 seed in this week’s Division 2-5A tournament that begins Tuesday at West Point. The Lady Chargers also played well in their regular season finale, defeating West Point 60-57 to finish 6-0 in the division and also earn the No. 1 seed in the tournament. (February 7, 2011, Page 3B)
