     It was the eighth consecutive regular-season victory for the Gold Rush, which is 4-0 for the seventh time in eight seasons.
     Andrew scored eight points in the first 3 minutes and led Xavier to a 48-33 halftime advantage. Andrew, who played 18 minutes, finished 7-of-9 from the floor and made all three of his 3-pointers.
     Three other Gold Rush players had season-high point totals. Tyrone Allen and Jeremy Lee scored 15 apiece, and Kevin Miller had 10.
