(WVUE) -

Xavier senior point guard Whitney Gathright has been named a first-team NAIA All-American by the Women's Basketball Coaches Association, the first Gold Nugget to earn the honor since Cassee Davis in 1998.

The John Curtis product averaged 14.4 points this season en route to ending her career with 1,414 points, the eighth most in school history.

Xavier made it to the NAIA Tournament this season but was dismissed Wednesday morning with a 75-50 loss to second-seeded Campbellsville.
