Unatego 66, Oxford 53

OXFORD – Unatego’s guard-laden offense had too much quickness for Oxford in Wednesday’s Midstate Athletic Conference battle.

Tanner Winchester consistently beat the Oxford defense into the lane finishing with a game-high 29 points. Winchester and teammate Kellen Komenda also split four three-pointers.

“They screen well and get open looks, but they also do a lot of driving to the basket,” said Oxford coach Tim Davis of Unatego. “We just needed a couple more quick guys to match them.”

Oxford trailed by nine early in second quarter. Three straight three-pointers by Cameron Heggie and two buckets from Matt Moore helped tie the game at 21-21. Unatego finished the quarter on an 11-0 run, and kept the lead in double digits for most of the second half. “We never could respond from their run at the end of the first half,” Davis said.



Heggie led Oxford with 23 points, Kevin Davis scored 15, and Moore had 11. Oxford is idle until Dec. 27 when it plays at the Unadilla Valley tournament.
