     NEW ORLEANS — Shaun Dumas of Xavier University of Louisiana is the Gulf Coast Athletic Conference Player of the Week in men's basketball for Dec. 29-Jan. 4.
     Dumas, a 5-foot-11 senior guard from New Orleans and a 2004 graduate of St. Augustine High School, averaged 17.5 points, 4.5 rebounds and 3.0 assists and shot 60.9 percent from the floor, 57.1 percent from 3-point range and 50 percent from the line in two games at the HBCU Classic at Dallas on Dec. 30-31. He had 13 points and a season-high eight rebounds against Paul Quinn in the Gold Rush's first road win of the season, then scored a season-high 22 points, including a season-best three 3-pointers, the next day against Jarvis Christian.
