(New Orleans, La.)  Junior Jarrian Jenkins finished with a team-high 14 points and 10 rebounds in Dillard's 67-41 loss to the Xavier Gold Rush at the Convocation Center in the 2015 Crosstown Classic.  With the loss, Dillard lands in the seventh spot out of eighgt teams in next week's GCAC tourney and will most likely face XU again.

As a team the Bleu Devils (5-24, 3-11 GCAC) shot 42 percent from the field while the Gold Rush (22-8, 11-3 GCAC) shot 54 percent.

Kristopher Allmon (SO/Baton Rouge, LA) chipped in with 11 points and had four turnovers in the loss for Dillard.  Houston Chatman (SO/Houma, LA) produced 10 points and has four turnovers as well for DU.

DU is finished with regular season play and will most likely face Xavier once again in the first round of next week's GCAC tourney.
