Box Score

NEW ORLEANS — Jarryn Cleaves scored 13 points Friday to lead Xavier University of Louisiana to a 63-40 women's basketball victory against Texas College.

The Gold Nuggets (3-0) limited the Lady Steers (1-1) to 15-percent shooting from the floor and extended their winning streak in The Barn to 37 games. This was Xavier's home opener.

Rynika Hebert scored nine points and Alissa Thompson eight for Xavier, which led 43-23 at halftime. The Nuggets took their biggest lead, 57-27, on Vyaisha Moss' basket with 14:02 remaining.

Catherine Yancy scored 13 points for Texas College. Erica Delley scored eight and, for the second consecutive game, grabbed 19 rebounds.

Xavier shot a season-low 36 percent from the floor and 41 percent from the line but outrebounded the Lady Steers 60-45. Dominee Matthews grabbed eight rebounds to lead the Nuggets for the second consecutive game.

"At times our year off will show," Xavier Coach Robert "Bo" Browder said. "This was one of those nights. We're not going to make excuses for it, but we're still struggling with chemistry at times. That's what we've got to get better at."

Cleaves had four assists, four steals and no turnovers in 24 minutes.

Xavier will play Concordia (Ala.) at 1 p.m. Saturday in The Barn.
