Mindful of the total development of his student-athletes, Xavier Coach Dannton Jackson took his men's basketball team to the school cafeteria one evening in November for 2 1/2 hours of volunteer work under the supervision of cafeteria director Pam Rivers-Smith. "They cooked, they served, they did everything," Jackson said. It was a different setting for the Gold Rush to apply strategy and teamwork to a goal-oriented project.
