     NEW ORLEANS — Xavier University of Louisiana has pushed back by 2 hours its starting times for a Saturday basketball doubleheader against Gulf Coast Athletic Conference and city rival SUNO.
     The new starting time of the women's game will be 5:30 p.m., followed by the men's game at 7:30 at XU's Convocation Center.
     "We respect that many of our fans want to watch the New Orleans Saints' playoff game this weekend," said Dannton Jackson, XU's interim athletics director and men's basketball coach. "We hope they'll enjoy watching a Saints victory in Seattle, then come out to the Convocation Center and support Xavier."
     The Saints and the Seahawks will kick off their NFL divisional playoff at 3:35 p.m. Saturday.
