SHREVEPORT — Freddy Hughes scored 18 points Thursday to lead LSU-Shreveport to a 65-54 Gulf Coast Athletic Conference men's basketball victory against NAIA No. 22 Xavier University of Louisiana.

Mark Stewart scored 19 points and Alfred Williams 11 for Xavier (17-8, 10-5 GCAC), which lost for the first time in 11 games and dropped into a second-place in the league with Tougaloo and a half-game behind LSUS (20-6, 11-5).

Stewart made three 3-pointers to move into second place on Xavier's career list with 174.

The teams were tied at 24 at halftime. Williams' 3-pointer with 8:19 remaining gave the Gold Rush its last lead, 44-43. The Pilots outscored Xavier 15-1 over the next 6:23.

Hughes also had seven rebounds and six assists. Kyile Byrd scored 15 points.

Neither team shot well from the floor — Xavier finished at 34.5 percent, LSUS 33.3 — but the Pilots outscored the Rush 24-11 from the line and outrebounded Xavier 47-26.

Xavier's next game will start at 7 p.m. Saturday against GCAC opponent Belhaven at Jackson, Miss. The Rush needs one victory in its last three regular-season games to secure a first-round bye in the GCAC Tournament.
