     NEW ORLEANS — Jamaan Kenner and Devin Andrew scored 13 points apiece Monday to lead NAIA No. 10 Xavier University of Louisiana to an 85-66 men's basketball victory over city rival Loyola.
     The Gold Rush, who climbed 10 spots in the national poll announced about two hours before tip-off, are 10-0 for the first time since 1983-84 and the second time since World War II. This was Xavier's 14th consecutive regular-season victory.
