     NEW ORLEANS — Basketball standouts Christina Warren and Cordell Hadnot of Xavier University of Louisiana are HBCU Division II winners in the Heritage Sports Radio Network National Player of the Week Fan Poll. Both received more than 60 percent in online voting which concluded Wednesday morning.
     Warren also was chosen Gulf Coast Athletic Conference Player of the Week for the second time this season.
     Warren, a 5-foot-9 senior forward/guard from Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., and a graduate of Los Osos High School, averaged 22.5 points, three rebounds, three assists, 1.5 blocks and two steals in two games

and had the two highest scoring performances of her Xavier career. Warren scored 25 points in a 77-60 home victory against Southern States Athletic Conference West Division leader Belhaven and scored 20 points, including the go-ahead basket with 3:19 remaining, in a 72-68 victory at Dillard.
