     Xavier's women (6-1) received 50 points to rank 28th, but the Gold Nuggets needed 74 points to make the top 25.
     Xavier's men (7-1) received one point — their first vote of the season — to tie for 36th place with nine other schools.
     The No. 1 teams are Mountain State's men (12-0) and the Union (Tenn.) women (10-1).
     Xavier's next men's game will start at 2 p.m. Saturday against Texas College — the only team to beat the Gold Rush — in the Wiley Classic at Marshall, Texas.
