Box Score

ATLANTA — Erica Turnbull had 16 points and nine rebounds Monday to lead Xavier University of Louisiana to a 75-64 women's basketball victory against Clark Atlanta.

Turnbull was limited to 19 minutes because of foul trouble but had nine points and five rebounds to help the Gold Nuggets (7-3) build a 36-24 halftime lead.

Dominee Matthews, with 10 points, was Xavier's only other double-figure scorer. Jarryn Cleaves and Brittany Whitmore had nine points each.

Prinsha Williams led Clark Atlanta (2-4) with 21 points and 13 rebounds.

Both teams shot around 40 percent from the floor, but Xavier outrebounded the Lady Panthers 45-36. Xavier committed 25 turnovers but gained 31, including 19 steals. The Nuggets' Tiffany Norris, Carla Robinson and Alissa Thompson each had four steals.

"We did a good job inside and a better job attacking the basket," Xavier Coach Robert "Bo" Browder said. "We didn't have the long offensive droughts we had our last two games. We're getting better game by game."

Xavier's next game will start at 6 p.m. Saturday at Central Arkansas. The Nuggets' next home game will start at 5 p.m. Jan. 6 against Mobile.
