Louisville is second, four shots off the lead, while Vanderbilt and UT-Arlington share third place, six shots back of the Golden Knights and four strokes in front of the Jaguars.

ASU junior Jake Amos turned in rounds of 74-71 and is tied for 18th at one-over 145. Sophomore Olle Bengtsson (73-73) is tied for 24th at two-over 146 and fellow sophomore Henrik Norlander (74-73) is a shot back in a tie for 31st at three-over 147.

Senior Janne Kaske matched Amos for the Jags’ best round of the day, carding a one-under 71 after a morning 76 and is tied with Norlander for 31st at 147. Sophomore Carter Newman booked the team’s best round of the morning with an even-par 72 and is tied for 41st at four-over 148.

UCF’s Blayne Barber fired a nine-under 135, including an eight-under 64 in the afternoon, and moved out to a four-shot lead over UT-Arlington’s Bobby Massa.

Mercer’s Bill Jones III and Ohio State’s Bo Haeg are tied for fifth at two-under 142.
