Oxford 63, Unadilla Valley 40

NEW BERLIN – Oxford outplayed Unadilla Valley from the opening tap, and took some retribution back from last year’s MAC championship game loss to the Storm with a thoroughly dominating win Wednesday night.

“We came out and played great defense,” said Oxford coach Tim Davis. “My guys were really fired up.”

Few if any teams have shown such superiority over the Storm, and a 32-7 halftime lead for the unbeaten Blackhawks was the largest halftime deficit UV has experienced in head coach Matt Osborne’s tenure. “We didn’t come mentally or physically ready to play, and I don’t know why,” Osborne said. “Their defensive pressure took us totally out of our rhythm on offense, and our guys were too tenative to shoot the ball.”



Alex Champlin hit a three ball at the end of the first quarter for his first points, then proceeded to knock down 12 points in the second stanza on his way to a game-high 23 points. Scott Seiler had 12 points for the Blackhawks (7-0) and Jeff Champlin added 10 points to go with a career-best 16 rebounds.

Raffi Perry scored 12 for Unadilla Valley (5-2), who had a four-game winning streak snapped.

Oxford plays Susquehanna Valley Saturday, Dec. 29 at 11:15 a.m. in the first round of the STOP DWI regional division.

Greene 71, Deposit 61

DEPOSIT – Greene coach Jeff Paske said his team didn’t play shut-down defense, but it did plenty of scoring to win for the fifth time in seven games.

“They kept hanging around and it some threes at key times to stay in the game,” Paske said. “We did a good job of making that extra pass, and everyone was contributing on the offensive end.”
