Gold Nuggets return to 21st in NAIA rankings
January 16, 2008

NEW ORLEANS — After spending one week at No. 20, Xavier University of Louisiana returned to 21st in the NAIA Division I women's basketball coaches poll released Wednesday.

The Gold Nuggets, 13-3 overall and 3-1 in the Gulf Coast Athletic Conference, are tied for 21st with Cumberlands after defeating GCAC opponents SUNO 75-43 and Tougaloo 67-53 this past week. Xavier also tied for 21st in the Dec. 5 and 12 rankings.

Union (15-0) of Jackson, Tenn., maintained the No. 1 spot it has held since the preseason. The Lady Bulldogs were a unanimous choice for the top spot for the fourth consecutive ranking.

Xavier will play a pair of GCAC games at home this week: 5:30 p.m. Thursday against Mobile (8-7, 4-0) and 5 p.m. Saturday against William Carey.

The next coaches poll will be announced Jan. 23.
