Gold Rush's California tournament canceled
For immediate release . . . November 28, 2006

NEW ORLEANS — The Xavier University of Louisiana men's basketball team has an unexpected addition to its Christmas list: opponents to play.

The Gold Rush is trying to fill a late-December hole in its schedule because organizers of the Hoopin' in Holidays Tournament at Los Angeles have canceled the event. Xavier was scheduled to compete against seven other historically black colleges and universities in the tournament and play three games Dec. 27-29.

Xavier is attempting to fill the void with a couple of games closer to home, Coach Dannton Jackson said Monday.

Xavier, 5-1 after an 89-64 home victory Monday against Philander Smith, will play Huston-Tillotson at 7 p.m. Saturday in The Barn.

The Xavier Gold Rush and Gold Nuggets compete in Division I of the NAIA (National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics) as a member of the Gulf Coast Athletic Conference (GCAC). Xavier fields men's and women's teams in basketball, cross country and tennis.
