The West Point basketball program did not end the district portion of its season the way they had hoped, getting swept by Oxford, on the road.
The good news is that the slate is wiped clean, as all of the district rivals come to West Point this week for the 2011 district tournament.
“Everybody’s record right now is zero and zero,” said West Point boys head coach Brad Cox. “The season has started over.”
The boys finished the season at No. 2 in the district, so they will start off tonight, against New Hope, at 8:30.
