Oxford’s Hixon sets new scoring record in 105-44 loss
OXFORD — In a season filled with little excitement and many tough losses, one Oxford College Eagle was able to overcome the adversity and put together a stel- lar performance on Monday night, despite his team being pummeled by Middle Georgia, 105-44.
Oxford All-American Chad Hixon entered the game needing just 22 points to break the all-time Oxford College scoring record, a record set back in 2005 by Austin Ewing (1,217 points). Ewing is now a strong contributor for his team at North Carolina A & T.
As the game began, the Eagles would quickly find themselves outmanned and unable to keep up with the speed and superb shooting of the Warriors. Turning the ball over seven times in the first half allowed Middle Georgia to put together a 25-2 run.
Using tough defense, the Warriors held Oxford to 23 first half points, to which Hixon had 14 of them.
