DEPOSIT- Itís that time of the year; Sectionals. Around this time of year, the cream always rises to the top, establishing some of the fine high school basketball that can be seen around. It was no different on Wednesday night as the 12th seeded Oxford Boys Basketball team traveled to take on the fifth seeded Lumberjacks of Deposit. In the Section IV set up of win or go home, both teams were primed to the best of their ability and delivered with a great game Ė with the final scoreline of 68-60 in favor of Deposit.

In the first quarter of play, the Lumberjacks exhibited their dominance early by outscoring the Blackhawks 19-9 in the opening period. The tag-team of Darren Shaver and Gaven Santamaria layered the Lumberjack offense each recording six points apiece, all while limiting the Oxford offensive unit to nine points in the quarter.

Adhi Vishwanthan kept the Blackhawks afloat by scoring five of Oxfordís nine first quarter points.
