Nuggets, after beating a top-10 team, move up to 23rd

January 28, 2014

     NEW ORLEANS — A 66-50 home victory against top-10 Talladega helped Xavier University of Louisiana climb from 25th to 23rd in the NAIA Division I Women's Basketball Coaches' Top 25 on Tuesday.
     The Gold Nuggets (16-6, 6-0 Gulf Coast Athletic Conference) are in the top 25 for the second consecutive week and the third time in six polls this season. They've won four straight and 12 of their last 13 games, and they've won 15 straight at home dating to January 2013.
     Talladega dropped from 10th to 11th.
     Xavier has three victories against teams in this week's top 25 — the others are No. 24 Mobile and No. 25 LSU-Shreveport.
     The top nine teams are the same as last week, and Vanguard continued its season-long reign at No. 1.
     New rankings will be announced next Tuesday (Feb. 4).
