Oxford 56, Greene 41

GREENE - Donovan Rickard had the biggest game of his young career lifting Oxford to its second win of the season at Greene on Friday.

Rickard scored a season-high 22 points for the Blackhawks, 11 coming in the pivotal fourth as Oxford was able to stretch out a single-digits lead.

"Donavan had a heck of a game," said Oxford coach Booker Davis. "Troy Timpson hit three clutch threes, and that turned the tide."

Simpson had a trio of three balls in the second half, and finished with 12 points.

Greene was hurt by depth, and wasn't able to keep pace in the final quarter. "We did not stop Oxford's transition game," said Trojans coach Rick Tallman.
