JACKSONVILLE — Another year, another tournament, and Oxford's girls are still rolling.
Last season at Pete Mathews Coliseum on the Jacksonville State campus, Oxford won the Calhoun County basketball tournament, ending Anniston's run of five straight titles. A few weeks later, the Yellow Jackets returned to the same floor and won the Northeast Regional.
They're at it again, as they steam rolled White Plains 59-20 on Tuesday in their 2023 Calhoun County tournament opener. Oxford coach Melissa Bennett called last year's championship win over Anniston as getting "over the hump," and that showed from the start Tuesday. Top-seeded Oxford (12-10) pressed No. 9 White Plains into submission in the first quarter, building a 17-0 lead and cruising from there.
