     XU's Echebelem is GCAC Player of the Week
August 30, 2012

     NEW ORLEANS — For the second consecutive year, Xavier University of Louisiana has the season's first Gulf Coast Athletic Conference Player of the Week in women's volleyball. Chinedu Echebelem won the award for Aug. 20-26, the conference announced Thursday.
     Echebelem — a 5-foot-6 outside hitter from Dallas and a graduate of Duncanville High School — earned the award after recording 30 kills and 29 digs in three matches during the Lee Invitational at Cleveland, Tenn. Echebelem had a pair of kill-dig double-doubles,
including 12 kills and 14 digs Saturday against Union (Ky.) in the Gold Nuggets' 25-20, 25-23, 18-25, 25-16 victory. Echebelem had two double-doubles in 29 matches in 2011.
     Xavier's home opener, scheduled for Tuesday against city rival Loyola at The Barn, has been postponed. Xavier has been closed since late Monday afternoon due to Hurricane Isaac, and the university will reopen Tuesday. No makeup date for the match has been determined.
