Men's basketball tryouts rescheduled for September 16
September 10, 2008

     NEW ORLEANS — Xavier University of Louisiana will conduct walk-on tryouts for the 2008-09 men's basketball season from 7 to 9 p.m. on Tuesday, September 16 at The Barn.
     Tryouts originally were scheduled for August 30, but they were postponed because the university closed in preparation for Hurricane Gustav. Classes resumed Monday.
     Contact Coach David Egans at (504) 520-6778 or dgegans@xula.edu for more information.
     "Prospective student-athletes should bring athletic gear, basketball shoes and a positive attitude," Egans said. "And they should be ready to work."
     Xavier, an NAIA Division I school, was 24-10 in 2007-08 and finished third in the Gulf Coast Athletic Conference. The Gold Rush qualified for the Buffalo Funds-NAIA Division I National Championship for a school-record fourth consecutive time. Xavier's 25 seasons of 20 or more victories are the most in the history of Louisiana men's college basketball.
     Xavier will begin its season at 5 p.m. on Oct. 31 against Southern Polytechnic at The Barn.
