Gold Rush adds neutral-site game against Wiley
For immediate release . . . December 18, 2006

NEW ORLEANS — The Xavier University of Louisiana men's basketball team has added a non-conference game against Wiley College to its December schedule.

The Gold Rush and Wildcats will play at noon on Sunday, Dec. 31 at a neutral site, Southern University of Shreveport's Health and Physical Education Center in Shreveport, La.

The additional contest, the third this season between Xavier and Wiley, will replace one of the three games the Gold Rush lost when organizers of the Hoopin' in Holidays Tournament at Los Angeles canceled their Dec. 27-29 event. Wiley also was scheduled to compete in the tournament.

Xavier still is interested in adding games to the schedule, and interested coaches should contact Coach Dannton Jackson at (504) 520-5448.

The Wiley game will be Xavier's first since a 79-63 loss Dec. 11 at Nicholls State. Xavier defeated Wiley 56-53 on Nov. 10 at The Barn and lost 79-61 to the Wildcats on Dec. 6 at Marshall, Texas.
