LOS FRESNOS, Texas — Janae Hirschi and Elisa Leader scored 10 points apiece Friday to rally Westminster (Utah) to a 47-44 women's basketball victory against Xavier University of Louisiana in the South Padre Island Shootout.

Xavier (7-5) led by 12 points with 17:46 remaining before Westminster (11-4) took the lead for good in the final three minutes.

Jarryn Cleaves scored 10 points for the Gold Nuggets, who have lost two straight and five of their last eight games since a 4-0 start. Westminster has won six in a row.
