The Oxford men’s basketball team is just getting into their season with ten games down and many more to come after this much needed Christmas break. Their statistics do not reflect what this team can do when they put their minds to it. Last night’s game is a perfect example. The student section was sparse at the start of the game, but per usual, many Oxford students later filed into the stands to support their fellow students as they took on Pasco-Hernando State College. The the beginning of the first half was a pretty even match up, but after a few missed opportunities, the opponents took advantage and put away some shots to drive up the score to an almost 20-point lead. However, by half-time our own Oxford Eagles had battled to bring the deficit back to single digits. The second half was met with a determined home team. The dedicated fan base was frantically cheering them on from the stands as the score proceeded to become closer and closer until there was only a four point difference brought about by a three-pointer from freshman Robbie Wainio and maintained with a follow-up shot from Ian Laurie. After a hard fought game, the score was settled with an 86-82 loss for the Eagles. With a long season ahead of them, this game is merely a stepping stone to what they can achieve as they move forward.
