RALEIGH, N.C - Kevin Reilly, the Conference USA Freshman of the Year, tied a career-best with a blistering 66 for the low round of the afternoon to lead the Rice Owls to the sixth best score of the afternoon, but the Owls stand 11th after two rounds of the 2014 Raleigh NCAA Regional at the par-71 Lonnie Poole Golf Course.
The Owls began the morning by completing the remaining holes of the rain delayed Thursday opening round. They opened in 13th place and +8, but moved to 12th by shooting just two over on the final nine holes.
After a 30 minute break, they returned to the course and posted the sixth best team score, highlighted by Reilly's round.
"It was a long day out there, but the guys kept fighting the whole way. If we can get some putts to fall tomorrow it'll get interesting," head coach Justin Emil said.
Reilly is now tied for 18th at 76-66--142 (E). His 66 matches the first round of Ollie Schniederjans of Georgia Tech for the low round for the tournament.
Senior Landon Michelson currently sits tied for 43rd after a 73-73--146 (+4). Michelson had one birdie and shot even on his first nine in the second round.
Junior Tommy Economou sits currently tied for 43rd after a 69-77--146 (+4). Economou tied his career low with a 69 in the first round. However after making pars on nine of his first 10 holes in the second round, he struggled late to finish with a 77.
James Lee shot a 74 (+3) in the second round to give him a 76-74--150 (+8), tying him for 63rd. The sophomore had two birdies in the second round and shot one under on his second nine. With those two birdies, Lee now has six birdies in the tournament.
Alex Levy cut eleven strokes off his first round 83-72 (+13) to move him into 74th place. The freshman doubled his first round birdie count with four in the second round.
No. 5 Georgia Tech leads the field of thirteen teams with a 540 (-28). They lead No. 8 Washington by fourteen strokes.
Rice sits in twelfth place currently two strokes behind No. 29 Mercer and Memphis and three strokes behind No. 41 Texas Tech.
The Owls will tee off at 8:20 am ET Friday starting on the back nine. They will be paired with Memphis and Mercer.
