The Huskies were led on the second day of play by freshman Brock Mackenzie, who carded a 1-under 71 for two-day total of 1-over 145. Mackenzie lost a two-hole playoff to Texas' John Klauk for the final at-large position in the individual field. Both players pared the par-5 ninth hole on the first playoff. On the second playoff hole, also on number nine, Mackenzie missed a 13-foot birdie putt while Klauk made his from four feet.

Arizona, which opened the tournament with an 8-under score of 280, shot 289 during the second round for a two-day total of 569. The Wildcats enter Friday's third round with a five-stroke lead over Florida, which turned in the tournament's best round, a 10-under 278 on Thursday, to move into second place with a 36-hole total of 574. Wake Forest shot 6-under on Thursday to hold down third place at 576.

Ricky Barnes, who shot a 65 to tie the Duke University Golf Course record, led Arizona. Barnes has a five-stroke lead for medalist honors with a two-day total of 133. Four players are tied for second at 138, including Augusta State's Jamie Elson, who also shot 65 on Thursday.

In addition to the Wildcats, Arizona State and Oregon State were the only other Pac-10 teams to advance to the final two rounds. The Sun Devils were tied for 11th at 10-over 586 while the Beavers had to advance after a three-way playoff to determine 14th and 15th places.
