Box score

     NEW ORLEANS — Senior center Keldra Hall had 18 points and nine rebounds Tuesday to lead NAIA No. 16 Xavier University of Louisiana to a 64-54 women's basketball victory against Spring Hill and give Bo Browder his 300th victory as coach of the Gold Nuggets.
     Browder, in his 13th season, is 300-102 and has reached 20 victories 11 times.
     "It's all about who's in your program," Browder said. "I've been blessed to have a wonderful assistant coach in Darrilyn Broussard since the start of my third season. And of course you can't win without good players, and we've had many contribute to our success."
     Jasmine Grant had 13 points, including three 3-pointers, four assists and three steals for Xavier (2-0), and Brandi Young had 10 points and five assists.
     Cassandra Mitchell had 16 points and five rebounds for Spring Hill (0-1), and April Bradford had nine points and two blocked shots.
     Xavier trailed 16-9 midway through the first half before taking the lead for good at 1:15 on SiMon Franklin's basket. The Gold Nuggets led 35-30 at halftime and led by 14 twice in the final 10 minutes.
     Both Hall and Mitchell scored 11 first-half points.
     The victory was Xavier's 12th in a row at home. Xavier defeated Spring Hill for the 37th time in the past 41 meetings and leads the series 47-11.
     It was the collegiate regular-season debut for Spring Hill head coach Karen McConico, an assistant at High Point the past seven years.
