Ox­ford: Ea­gles an­tic­i­pate yet an­other year of stel­lar hoops

The Covington News - - SPORTS -

sea­son’s In­ter-Re­gion Cham­pi­onship Game.

Gise is ex­pected to join team prac­tice in the near fu­ture.

Sopho­more cen­ter Matt O’Con­nor tow­ered over the rest of the team as he took his place at the be­gin­ning of the game. O’Con­nor is a force on the glass, and is one to keep an eye on through­out the sea­son.

The team’s fresh­men are also quite note­wor­thy. Jor­dan Wash­ing­ton and Ma­keen Sabree have shown they are some of the team’s most ath­letic play­ers and will be es­sen­tial in cre­at­ing havoc on the de­fen­sive end of the floor.

Austin More­lock and Eric Kel­li­her pos­sess tough­ness and a deep out­side shot that will work to the Ea­gles’ ad­van­tage dur­ing games. In ad­di­tion, fresh­man Arnold Kim and Mi­noo Kim (no re­la­tion) are both ver­sa­tile and game savvy play­ers who will serve as great as­sets to the team.

One thing re­mains cer­tain: Judg­ing from the crowd and its par­tic­i­pa­tion, the Ox­ford Col­lege Ea­gle spirit is alive and well.

The Ea­gles tip off their sea­son on the road against South­east­ern Bi­ble Col­lege in Birm­ing­ham, Ala. At 4 p.m. to­day. The first bas­ket­ball con­test held at the Ea­gle’s Nest is at 7 p.m. Mon­day.
