Box score

     MOBILE, Ala. — Chris Iles scored 16 points and Michael Harvey 15 Monday to lead NAIA No. 10 Xavier University of Louisiana to a 65-54 men's basketball victory over Spring Hill.
     The victory was the ninth in a row for the Gold Rush (23-2). Xavier swept the two-game regular-season series against the Badgers (7-13) for the first time since 2004-05.
     Iles made 4-of-6 3-pointers and tied his season scoring high for the second consecutive game. Harvey scored in double figures for the second straight game — the first time that's happened since late December.
     Xavier, outscored 15-8 in the first seven minutes, rallied to lead 30-26 at halftime. Jeremy Lee scored the final four points of the half to put the Gold Rush ahead to stay.
     Iles' 3-pointer with 3:25 remaining gave Xavier its biggest lead, 58-42.
     Xavier outshot the Badgers 50 to 40.9 percent from the floor — the Gold Rush made 8-of-17 3-pointers — and had a 32-24 rebound advantage.
     Nick Brown scored 16 points and Tyler Schwab 10 for Spring Hill, which has lost three straight and 10 of its last 12 games.
     Xavier, which climbed one spot in the national coaches poll Monday, will travel to No. 21 Tougaloo for a Gulf Coast Athletic Conference game at 7 p.m. Saturday. The next XU home game will start at 7 p.m. Feb. 19 against SUNO.
