     The victory was the fourth in a row for the Gold Nuggets (16-4) and their second this season in two meetings with the Lady Rams (11-10). Xavier clinched its 12th consecutive winning season, which extends a school record, and will finish above .500 for the 20th time in 21 seasons.

     Briana Edwards had 20 points and eight rebounds for Mobile, and Deonica McCormick had 17 points, seven assists and three steals.
     Xavier trailed 17-12 in the ninth minute, then scored the next 14 points to take the lead for good. Broussard's basket at 6:57 capped the run and gave the Gold Nuggets a 26-17 lead. Xavier led 36-27 at halftime and held a double-digit advantage for the final 13:27.
     Xavier, winning by double digits for the 12th time this season, had a 43-28 rebound advantage — the Gold Nuggets had 25 offensive rebounds — committed 15 turnovers and gained 23. Mobile outshot the Gold Nuggets 43.8 to 39.4 percent from the floor.
