    I am a 1985 graduate of JF Webb and went to the Person/Webb game friday night. Webb and Isiah Hicks are for real this year...they go inside, and pop the three and before you know it they have a commanding lead. I think we will be watching playoff basketball in Oxford this season...and you better get there early. The gym hold 1400 and they lock the doors after that...there were about 125 people that they announced who could not get in at all.......what a great game atmosphere, just too tight sitting in the stands.....
