Xavier's Powell selected to All-Louisiana second team
April 2, 2010

     NEW ORLEANS — Xavier University of Louisiana's Brittany Powell, no stranger to postseason honors, picked up another late Friday when she was named to the All-Louisiana collegiate women's basketball second team.
     Powell, a 6-foot senior forward/center from Milwaukee and a graduate of Divine Savior Holy Angels High School, is Xavier's first All-Louisiana second-team selection in women's basketball since Cassee Davis in 1997-98. Powell was honorable mention a year ago.
     Powell led the Gold Nuggets with 14.7 points, 5.9 rebounds and 1.3 blocked shots per game this season and was the Gulf Coast Athletic Conference Player of the Year. Xavier finished 28-6, won GCAC regular-season and tournament championships and earned a berth in the NAIA Division I National Championship. The Nuggets entered the national tournament with a 21-game win streak, the second longest in the Nuggets' history.
     Xavier's Bo Browder finished fourth in the voting for Coach of the Year. Tulane's Lisa Stockton won that award.
     A Louisiana Sports Writers Association panel selected the team.
