EDMOND, Okla. – All five Rice University golfers shot a 75 or better on Monday to help the Owls maintain their hold on fourth place on the second day of the Conference USA Championship at Oak Tree Country Club. The squad heads into the final round with a 293-282—575 (+15), tied with Middle Tennessee.
Kevin Reilly put together a second-straight stellar round for the Owls to move into a tie for second place overall. The freshman owns a 70-69—139 (-1) through 36 holes. He carded 15 pars with a pair of birdies on Monday to accompany his two birdies and tournament-leading two eagles from Sunday’s first round. Reilly stands just two strokes behind the leader, Tulsa’s Logan McCracken.
Junior Tommy Economou finished the day tied for fifth place with a 70-71—141 (+1), including three birdies on Monday and seven total through two rounds. He sank par on 10 of the first 11 holes of Monday’s round.
James Lee cut eight strokes off his opening round score to move 15 spots up the leader board to 29th place. The sophomore holds a 78-70—148 (+8) through two rounds.
Senior Landon Michelson matched his opening day totals with another round of 75, including four more birdies, to end the day in 39th place at 75-75—150 (+10). His total of eight birdies mark the fourth-most in the event.
Alex Levy knocked an impressive 10 strokes off his Sunday score with an 82-72—154 (+14) to move up to a tie for 52nd place. The rookie sank two birdies in his opening round but carded four on Monday.
Tulsa maintains its lead with a 569 (+9), three stroke ahead of Charlotte and four up on No. 18 UAB. Rice’s Monday score was just one shy of the day’s best, a 281 by both Tulsa and Charlotte.
Rice and the Blue Raiders find themselves just two more strokes back from the Blazers, and with an 11-stroke cushion over sixth-place Southern Miss with 18 holes to play.
Reilly is tied with UAB’s Paul Dunne and Tulsa’s Matt Mabrey, as all three have posted identical 70-69 rounds. Economou is knotted with Louisiana Tech’s Victor Lange and Charlotte’s Raoul Menard.
The Owls tee off in the final round on Tuesday beginning at 8 a.m. on the first hole. Rice is paired with Middle Tennessee and Southern Miss. Groups from Charlotte, Tulsa and UAB will follow right after, starting at 8:45 a.m.
