Dumas, a 5-foot-11 sophomore from New Orleans (St. Augustine High School), averaged 13.2 points, 6.1 assists and 3.1 steals this season for the Gold Rush, which shared the Gulf Coast Athletic Conference regular-season championship with Tougaloo and reached the second round of the NAIA Division I National Tournament for the first time since 1973. Dumas ranked third in NAIA Division I in steals per game and fifth in assists per game.

Dumas is the third Xavier male on one of the top three All-America squads and the first since since Alvin "Bo" Dukes made third team in 1981-82. Dumas is the only sophomore on this season's All-America list.

Mark Stewart (Destrehan, La., and Destrehan High School), who led Xavier in scoring with a 16.8 average and set school records for 3-pointers made in a season (109) and a career (202), earned honorable mention.
