In the Mississippi Valley,
In the Crescent Bend
Stands our loved and noble Xavier,
Far her praises send.
Wave her colors bear them onward
Gold and white so true
Hail to thee, all hail, dear Xavier
Hail, all hail, X.U.!
Xavier, ever be our guide
And lead us on the way,
Through life's journey, onward, upward
To the eternal day. (Refrain)
Amite's Harvey signs with Gold Rush
For immediate release . . . May 22, 2007
NEW ORLEANS — Michael Harvey of Amite (La.) High School has signed a men's
basketball scholarship with Xavier University of Louisiana.
Harvey, a 6-foot-1, 185-pound shooting guard, averaged a team-leading 22 points
per game this past season for Amite's Warriors and was second on the team with averages of 8.5
rebounds and 4.5 assists. A three-year starter, Harvey was first-team
All-District 9-3A as a senior and made the second team as a junior.
He competed for the East in the Louisiana High School Coaches Association
"Michael shot the ball very well when he worked out for us," Xavier Coach
Dannton Jackson said. "He was very athletic, competitive and tough.
He's a hard-nosed kid. He's a good a student, has good character and
comes from a good family. He's the kind you like to have in your program."
Harvey produced three 30-point games his senior season with a high of 34.
"Michael is a fantastic kid," Amite Coach Alvin Stevens said. "He won't hurt you
anywhere. He works hard on the court and in the classroom."
Harvey is the second Xavier men's basketball signee for 2007-08, joining
6-8 forward Jarrel Lake, a transfer from Cal State Fullerton.
Xavier was 22-10 this past season, earned a share of the Gulf Coast Athletic
Conference regular-season championship and won 10 consecutive GCAC games for
the first time in 20 years. The Gold Rush played in the NAIA tourney for a
program-record third consecutive time and upset third-seeded Georgetown
(Ky.) 82-79 in the opening round for its first NAIA tourney victory since
1973. Xavier next season will return 10 of 11 lettermen, including point
guard Shaun Dumas, a third-team NAIA All-American, and shooting guard Mark
Stewart, who made a Xavier-record 109 3-pointers and was third-team All-Louisiana.
Dumas also was chosen Small College
Player of the Year by the Louisiana Association of Basketball Coaches.
