Oxford basketball enjoyed a stellar performance from their star duo of junior D.J. Davis and freshman Adam Tyson on Tuesday as the pair combined for 42 points in a 66-53 victory over Starkville Academy.

Davis poured in a game-high 24 points to lead the way for the Chargers, who controlled the action from the opening jump but were unable to pull away after the Volunteers caught fire from beyond the arc in the second half to keep the game close.

Tyson bounced back from a subpar performance against Bayou Academy on Monday night as he recorded 18 points on 7-of-9 shooting in the victory.

The Chargers will take the rest of the week off before hitting the road next week for a matchup with Alcorn Central on Nov. 29.
