For immediate release . . . March 1, 2007

NEW ORLEANS — Shaun Dumas and Mark Stewart, the starting backcourt of the Xavier University of Louisiana men's basketball team, were selected to the All-Gulf Coast Athletic Conference team by the league's head coaches.

Dumas, a 5-foot-11 sophomore from New Orleans, was second on the Gold Rush during the regular season with a 12.5 scoring average. He ranks among the top five in NAIA Division I in assists per game and steals per game. He is the only Xavier player to start every game this season.

Stewart, a 6-1 guard from Destrehan, La., led Xavier during the regular season with a 16.5 scoring average and made 92 3-pointers to break the Xavier season record. He has 185 career 3-pointers to share the Xavier record with Dale Montgomery (1992-96), and his .861 free-throw percentage (204 of 237) is the best in school history.

Dumas and Stewart helped lead Xavier to a 20-8 regular-season record, and a share of the GCAC regular-season championship with Tougaloo. The Rush is the No. 2 seed in the GCAC Tournament and will play seventh-seeded Spring Hill at The Barn at 7 o'clock tonight.
