February 18, 2010

Box score

     NEW ORLEANS — Devin Andrew scored 16 points Thursday to lead three from Xavier University of Louisiana in double figures in a 62-54 Gulf Coast Athletic Conference men's basketball victory at Loyola.
     The Gold Rush (15-12 overall, 6-9 GCAC) snapped a two-game losing streak and handed the Wolfpack (13-13, 5-10) its seventh loss in a row.
     Michael Harvey added 13 points and Dannie Woods 10 for Xavier, which led 26-23 at halftime. Woods played 13 minutes and made 6-of-6 free throws after missing the previous 12 games because of injury.
     Ryan Brock scored 16 points and Torry Beaulieu 12 for Loyola, which has lost four straight at home. Brock missed 11-of-17 free throws, and the Wolfpack finished 16-of-32.
     Loyola entered the game averaging 79.4 points, but Xavier limited Loyola to its fewest points of the season. The Gold Rush had a 43-32 rebound advantage -- Xavier's best margin against a GCAC opponent this season -- and outshot the Wolfpack 47.7 to 31 percent from the floor. Xavier is second in NAIA Division I in field-goal percentage defense.
     Darrinton Moncrieffe's free throw for Loyola tied the score at 29 with 15:40 remaining, but Xavier scored the next seven points — two baskets by Andrew and a Harvey 3-pointer — and never lost the lead again.
     Landon Bussie led Xavier with a career-high-tying 10 rebounds, seven in the second half.
     Xavier's bench outscored Loyola's 32-15.
     Xavier's next game will start at 7 p.m. Saturday at The Barn against Dillard in the Allstate Sugar Bowl Crosstown Classic.
