Gold Nuggets' Powell is GCAC Player of the Week
January 4, 2010

     NEW ORLEANS — Senior Brittany Powell of Xavier University of Louisiana is the Gulf Coast Athletic Conference Player of the Week in women's basketball for Dec. 28-Jan. 3.
     Powell, a 6-foot forward/center from Milwaukee, Wis., and a graduate of Divine Savior Holy Angels High School, averaged 13.4 points and 6.2 rebounds as Xavier played five games in seven days -- three in Irvine, Calif., then two at home. She was Xavier's representative on the Surf City Classic all-tournament team and scored a season-high 18 points against Daemen in the middle game of that event on Tuesday.
     Powell had 17 points, seven rebounds and two blocked shots Sunday against Campbellsville, ranked 10th in NAIA Division I, in a 71-70 loss at The Barn. She made 5-of-5 free throws against the Lady Tigers for the best single-game accuracy by a Gold Nugget this season.
     This is the second time Powell has won the GCAC's weekly award. She first did it for Dec. 1-7, 2008.
     Xavier is 7-5, and its next game will be its Gulf Coast Athletic Conference opener at 5:30 p.m. Thursday at LSU-Shreveport. The next home game will start at 5:30 p.m. on Jan. 14 against GCAC opponent Spring Hill at The Barn.
