NEW ORLEANS — Xavier University of Louisiana’s Jalen David was named first-team All-Gulf Coast Athletic Conference in men’s basketball Thursday.
David — a 6-foot-4 senior guard/forward from Mount Vernon, N.Y., and a former Mount Vernon High School and Moberly Area (Mo.) Community College standout — is averaging 12.1 points and five rebounds through 29 games this season with the Gold Rush. David was second All-GCAC a year ago.
XULA is 22-7, ranked 25th in NAIA Division I and GCAC regular-season co-champion with Dillard. The Gold Rush are seeded second in the conference tournament and will play seventh seed Edward Waters in the first round at 5 p.m. CST Friday at SUNO’s The Castle.
