NEW ORLEANS — Jalen David, the only Xavier University of Louisiana men's basketball player with a double-figure scoring average at the close of the regular season, is the lone Gold Rush honoree on the 2016-17 All-Gulf Coast Athletic Conference team.

The GCAC announced awards Thursday night at a banquet for all teams. The GCAC Tournament for men and women will begin Friday.

Although he started just 10-of-29 games and ranked fourth in minutes played per game, David averaged a XULA-leading 11.8 points per game. He also led the Gold Rush with 37 steals, 19 double-figure scoring games and in field goals and free throws made and attempted.

"This is a great honor," said David, a 6-foot-4 junior guard/forward from Mount Vernon, N.Y., a graduate of Mount Vernon High School and a transfer from Moberly Area (Mo.) Community College. "I want to thank the GCAC for this award. I'm very appreciative. But I especially want to thank my teammates and coaches for making this possible."

David averaged 15.3 points in the first seven games, then averaged 8.6 in the next 12 games, then closed the regular season by averaging 13.3 points and making 39.4 percent of his 3-pointers in the final 10 games.

"It's been an up-and-down year," David said. "But I think I've made progress as a person and an athlete. I know we have more work to do at the conference tournament."

The Gold Rush (10-19) are seeded fourth in the tournament and will play fifth-seeded Edward Waters (12-17) at noon Friday at Dillard's Dent Hall.
