     NEW ORLEANS — Rutgers completed its three-match trip to Louisiana with a 9-0 women's victory against Xavier University at the University of New Orleans Tennis Center.
     The Scarlet Knights (8-4) won their third in a row and gave Xavier (2-10), ranked 24th in the NAIA, its eighth consecutive loss.
