Gold Nuggets remain 16th, await trip to unbeaten SUNO

January 25, 2011

     NEW ORLEANS — Xavier University of Louisiana is 16th for the second consecutive week in the NAIA Division I Women's Basketball Coaches' Top 25.
     The Gold Nuggets, in their only game of the week, won 78-50 at home against Tougaloo in their Gulf Coast Athletic Conference opener. That clinched a school-record 10th consecutive winning season.
     The XU women improved to 18-4 on Monday — about three hours after the sixth poll of the season was announced — with a come-from-behind 48-47 home victory against Mobile.
     Xavier has been in the top 25 of every poll this season, with its highest position 15th on Dec. 13.
     The other GCAC team receiving votes, SUNO, will play host to Xavier at 5 p.m. Saturday at The Castle. The Lady Knights are 16-0 and 31st in the ratings for the second straight week.
     Two-time defending national champion Union (Tenn.) is No. 1 for the 42nd consecutive week. The top four teams — Union, Oklahoma City, Campbellsville and Freed-Hardeman — are the same as last week.
