College Athletic Association and the tournament’s round of 32. In 2012-13 the Oxford basketball team won 23 games, one season after going 21-10.
Prior to coming to Oxford Stubbs was an assistant at Morehouse College for 13 years, and played for the Atlanta school four years prior to that.
Stubbs helped the Maroon Tigers reach the NCAA Division II Final Four and earn a national No. 1 ranking by Sports Illustrated in his junior season.
Stubbs now looks to continue his success in athletics as Oxford continues to grow its athletics program.
That growth took its first step two years ago when the athletic department, student recreation department and creditbearing health classes were merged into one unit – the Center for Healthful Living program.
With the athletic department a part of the Center for Healthful Living, Stubbs works under the program’s di- rector Amanda Yu and with Assistant Athletic Director for Facilities, Peter Sherrard. Stubbs thinks this is the first college program in the country to take this approach to its athletic department, and so far it’s working.
“It really has gotten off to a good start,” Stubbs said. “We’re trying to promote combining resources on campus for the single purpose of healthy living.”
Stubbs will now look to continue that strong start, as he takes Oxford to a future of Eagles’ athletics with new sports and new heights.
