     Dumas is third-team All-America for second time
March 24, 2009

     NEW ORLEANS — Shaun Dumas did it again Tuesday.
     The Xavier University of Louisiana men's basketball standout was named third-team NAIA Division I All-America for the second time in three seasons.
     Dumas, a 5-foot-11 senior guard from New Orleans and a 2004 graduate of St. Augustine High School, is the first Xavier men's basketball player to make third team or higher twice. Bruce Seals was a first-team All-American in 1972-73, and Alvin "Bo" Dukes made the third team in 1981-82.
     Dumas earned honorable mention as a junior, so Tuesday's honor made him the only Xavier men's basketball player to receive honorable mention or higher on three NAIA All-American teams. The other Gold Rush player to do it more than once was Seals.
     Dumas averaged 14.7 points, 4.2 assists and 3.2 steals per game in 2008-09 and was the third Gold Rush player in 27 seasons to lead the team in those categories in the same year. He was a two-time Gulf Coast Athletic Conference Player of the Week and was All-GCAC a third consecutive season.
     Xavier finished 19-12 and tied for fourth place in the GCAC.
