Warren is Gold Nuggets' second signee for 2009-10
September 4, 2009

     NEW ORLEANS — Xavier University of Louisiana has added a second newcomer to its 2009-10 women's basketball roster with the signing of Christina Warren to a scholarship.
     Warren is a 5-foot-9 forward-guard from Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., and a graduate of Los Osos High School and Chaffey College. She'll be a junior on the Gold Nuggets' roster.
     Warren averaged 12.7 points, 5.7 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 1.6 steals and 1.1 blocked shots per game and shot 45 percent from the floor and 76 percent from the line during two seasons (2006-08) at Chaffey and helped the Panthers go 46-18 and reach the semifinals of the regional playoffs both years. She was first-team All-Foothill Conference both seasons, MVP of two tournaments her freshman year and all-tournament three times as a sophomore.
     "Christina never ceased to amaze me with her ability to score," Chaffey coach Gary Plunkett said. "She found ways to put it in the basket when nobody else could. If you tried to get physical with her, she was unfazed by that."
     As a sophomore Warren led Chaffey with 13.5 points per game.
     "We were looking for a player with size who could help us on offense," Xavier coach Bo Browder said. "We were blessed to find Christina this late in the summer."
     At Los Osos Warren averaged 13.1 points and 5.3 rebounds her senior year.
     Warren is the second from Rancho Cucamonga to sign with Xavier this year. Freshman guard DeRonn Scott (Etiwanda High) signed in April with the men's basketball team.
     Xavier made 13 appearances in the NAIA Division I National Championship the past 15 seasons and was 23-9 in 2008-09. The Gold Nuggets will return 12 letterwomen, including LaTashia Wise and honorable-mention All-American Brittany Powell, both seniors.
