     NEW ORLEANS — Xavier University of Louisiana's Jazmoné Kelly, who had one of the best games of her career Saturday in a 25-point victory against Loyola, was selected Gulf Coast Athletic Conference Player of the Week in women's basketball for Jan. 10-16.
     Kelly, a 5-foot-9 junior guard/forward from Cincinnati and a graduate of that city's Ursuline Academy, averaged 13.5 points, 4.5 assists, 2.5 rebounds and two steals and shot 55 percent from the floor in a pair of double-digit home victories. She scored a season-high 17 points and had a career-best seven assists in the Gold Nuggets' 77-52 victory against Loyola. Kelly produced nine points, four rebounds, three steals and two assists in a 56-41 victory against William Carey five days earlier.
     Kelly is averaging 7.3 points, four rebounds, two assists and 1.9 steals in 20 games

with 13 starts this season. During the past nine games she leads Xavier in scoring with 10.4 points per game.
     "We need Jazmoné Kelly to continue to step up and play at a high level for us," Xavier Coach Bo Browder said. "She's been in our program awhile, so we demand and expect more from our veterans."
     Kelly is the fifth Gold Nugget to win the award this season, joining Keldra Hall (twice), Jasmine Grant, Carmen Holcombe and Christina Warren.
     Xavier, 16-4 and ranked 16th in NAIA Division I, will play Tougaloo at 5 p.m. Saturday at The Barn in the Gulf Coast Athletic Conference opener for both teams.
