NEW ORLEANS — Xavier University of Louisiana remained at No. 11 in the NAIA Division I men's basketball coaches poll released Wednesday.

It's the third consecutive ranking in which the Gold Rush is 11th. It also occurred on Dec. 5 and Dec. 11. In the only other ranking of the 2007-08 season, Xavier was 10th in the preseason poll released Oct. 31.

Xavier is 12-2 overall and shares first place in the Gulf Coast Athletic Conference with LSU-Shreveport and Mobile. LSUS (13-0) is fourth in this week's rankings — the Pilots moved up one place — and received two of 11 first-place votes. Xavier will visit LSUS on Jan. 23 and host the Pilots on Feb. 14.

Mountain State (14-0) of Beckley, W.Va., is No. 1 for the third consecutive ranking and received the other nine first-place votes.
