Men's Basketball - Thu, Jul. 12, 2012
     NEW ORLEANS - Lucas Martin-Julien of Reserve, La., and Wesley Pluviose-Philip of Albany, N.Y., have signed men's basketball scholarships with Xavier University of Louisiana. Both will be freshmen in the 2012-13 season.
     Martin-Julien, a 6-foot-2 guard, was a three-year starter for Riverside Academy in Reserve, about 30 miles west of New Orleans. He helped the Rebels win Class 2A state championships in 2010 and 2011 and finish second in the 2A playoffs this past season. He was all-district as a junior and a senior and honorable-mention all-state as a senior. He averaged 9.9 points per game this past season and 9.5 points as a junior.     He was a WGNO-TV VooDoo Prep Athlete of the Week in January after his putback layup with 41 seconds remaining gave Riverside a 57-55 victory against Scotlandville Magnet. He also made 7-of-8 free throws in that game. Martin-Julien had six steals Dec. 20 against Prestonwood Christian, the eventual Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools 5A state champion.
     Martin-Julien played football his final two seasons at Riverside, starting at strong safety both years and making all-district as a senior for a team that reached the 2A state quarterfinals.
     Pluviose-Philip, a 6-7 forward, was a standout on and off the court. He averaged 12 points and eight rebounds per game for Albany High School this past season, was second-team all-conference and was chosen to start in the Albany-area outstanding senior game. He averaged 15 points and 11 rebounds in club play for City Rocks during the summer of 2011. He was a two-year starter and helped Albany reach the sectional semifinals in 2010 and 2011. In track Pluviose-Philip had a best time of 51 seconds for 400 meters.
     Pluviose-Martin attended Boys State in 2011, and later that year he and a basketball teammate organized a bedding drive for victims of Tropical Storm Irene in New York's Schoharie County. Also his senior year, Pluviose-Philip was one of two student representatives to the City School District of Albany Board of Education.
     Pluvoise-Philip will be a biology/pre-medical major at Xavier. Martin-Julien still is deciding on a major.
     The Gold Rush have six signees for next season. Previously signed were guard RJ Daniels of New Orleans, guard Xavier Rogers of Denton, Texas, forward John Gibson of Marietta, Ga., and guard Gary Smith of Sugar Land, Texas.
     Xavier was 23-9 this past season, shared the Gulf Coast Athletic Conference regular-season championship, qualified for the second straight year for the Buffalo Funds-NAIA Division I National Championship and ranked 24th in the postseason coaches poll. Xavier's 27 seasons of 20 or more victories are the most in the history of Louisiana men's college basketball. The Rush reached the NAIA national tourney six of the past eight seasons.
