Oxford boys stun Udall, makes SCBL into a three-way race

first_imgby Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — Ever so often people are reminded why they love sports.The Oxford boys pulled off an upset Tuesday night that shook the hierarchy order of the South-Central Border League boys basketball standings. Oxford knocked off Udall, 39-37, on the road.Udall came in as the No. 7 ranked team in Class 1A-Div. I according to the latest Kansas Basketball Coaches Association poll.And much like K-State Wildcat fans stormed the court on Monday night after the big upset win over the Jayhawks, so did the Oxford Wildcat fans on Tuesday night. Was it “Wildcat Week?”  “What a great high school basketball game and a great atmosphere,” Green said. “Udall was 14-1 and has a quality basketball team.”Oxford went into the hole early, trailing 10-2 after one quarter. But in the second, Oxford outscored Udall 13-10 and trailed 20-15 with renewed energy going into halftime.In the third quarter, Udall upped the lead back to eight and led 32-24 going into the final frame.But Oxford controlled the tempo thereafter.“We got after it on that end and really took them out of their spread dribble drive and forced them into some bad shots,” Green said.With 9.1 seconds to play, Oxford’s Timmie Catlin got fouled after breaking the press. He missed the free throw but Oxford made the stop on the other end to secure the two-point win.“This is one of the best defensive teams I’ve had in my time here and this game was won on the defensive end of the floor,” Green said. “This was a total team win for us.”Catlin led Oxford with 13. Other scorers include: Derek Williams with 10, Dexter Norris 6, Carson Crain 2, Tyler Eckstein 3, and Kurt Sloan 2.Udall’s scorers include: Perez 15, Weber 1, Martin 14, Williams 5, Welshans 2.Oxford was 7 of 14 from the free throw line and won without hitting a 3-pointer. Udall had seven treys.The Wildcats, 9-5 overall, have moved into a tie in the loss column with Udall in the SCBL race. Udall is 6-1 and Oxford is 4-1. West Elk is leading at 5-0.Of course, sub-state tournament positioning is the primary focus of a basketball coach. Green said Oxford could finish 14-6 or 15-5 which would land it as a No. 4 seed in a loaded sub-state out east that features Oswego, West Elk and the always loaded Pitt Colgan.Oxford travels to 2-14 (0-7) to Central on Friday.“We are on an NBA like schedule- three games this week, three games next week,” Green said.•••••In girls action, Udall beat Oxford 50-44.Oxford led 13-7 at the end of the first quarter but Udall outscored the Wildcats 19-1 in the second quarter and never trailed thereafter.Scoring for Oxford were: Payne 21, Perez 2, Metz 16, Whitlock 4, Lawrenz 1. Udall was led by Bracheric with 20. Close Forgot password? Please put in your email: Send me my password!
