January 8, 2013

     NEW ORLEANS — Xavier University of Louisiana remained ninth Tuesday in the NAIA Division I Women's Basketball Coaches' Top 25 Poll. This is the fourth poll of 2012-13, the third of the regular season and the first since Dec. 11.
     The Gold Nuggets are in the top 10 for the third consecutive poll and in the top 25 for the 35th consecutive time dating to January 2010. The latter streak is the longest during Bo Browder's 14 seasons as head coach.
     Voting was based on games through Sunday. Xavier lost 68-65 at Talladega the following day to fall to 11-3 overall and 1-1 in the Gulf Coast Athletic Conference.
     The Nuggets' most notable victory between polls was a 75-67 double-overtime victory against Bethel (Tenn.) on Jan. 2. Bethel is 14th in this week's poll.
     The Gold Nuggets will play their next four games at XU's new Convocation Center, including Tougaloo at 3 p.m. Saturday and city rival SUNO at 5:30 p.m. Monday.
     The next poll will be announced Jan. 15.
