     NEW ORLEANS — Michael Harvey scored 10 of his 12 points in the first half Thursday, and Xavier University of Louisiana clamped down on William Carey to earn a 48-45 Gulf Coast Athletic Conference men's basketball victory at The Barn.
     The Gold Rush (11-6 overall, 3-2 GCAC) has a two-game winning streak for the first time since late November.
