     TALLADEGA, Ala. — Xavier University of Louisiana defeated Talladega 25-15, 25-15, 25-13 in Gulf Coast Athletic Conference women's volleyball Sunday to improve its win streak to six.

     The Nuggets won a conference road match for the second straight day. They won at Edward Waters on Saturday morning, then bused about 400 miles to Talladega.
     "It was a long weekend for us," XU coach Hannah Lawing said. "Talladega wasn't our best match, but we worked through it."
     Xavier is 4-0 all-time against Talladega.
     Xavier has won 32 consecutive matches against GCAC opponents since the start of the 2011 season. The Gold Nuggets' win streak in regular-season conference matches is 26, which dates to October 2010. The longer streak includes GCAC Tournament matches.
