Cleaves is third-team All-Louisiana again
For immediate release . . . April 6, 2007

NEW ORLEANS — Guard Jarryn Cleaves of Xavier University of Louisiana is a repeat third-team selection on the All-Louisiana women's basketball team.

The Louisiana Sports Writers Association chose the team.

Cleaves, a 5-foot-8 junior from Memphis, Tenn. (East High School), led the Gold Nuggets and ranked sixth in the Gulf Coast Athletic Conference with a 14.2 scoring average. She made a Xavier-record 88 3-pointers and led the Nuggets (23-12) to their sixth consecutive berth in the NAIA Division I National Tournament.

Cleaves, a three-time All-GCAC selection, was All-Louisiana in 2004-05 as a sophomore. Xavier did not compete in 2005-06 because of the effects of Hurricane Katrina.

LSU's All-America junior center Sylvia Fowles, who averaged 16.9 points and 12.6 rebounds and led the Lady Tigers to their fourth consecutive Final Four, is the Player of the Year.

The LSWA will announce the All-Louisiana men's basketball team Saturday night.
