Troy finished 12 strokes back of tourney champion Arizona State, which shot a tournament-record 824. Pepperdine was third (835), TCU was fourth (836) and Oklahoma was fifth (840).

Senior David Oh had his finest performance as a Trojan, shooting a career-low 204--including rounds of 68 and 66--to finish second, three strokes behind individual champion David Schultz (201).

Freshman Taylor Wood continued his fine play of late, shooting a career-best 207--including rounds of 68 and 66--to finish tied for seventh.

Also for USC, senior Chris Botsford shot 214 to tied for 42nd, junior Scott Oxandaboure shot 215 to tie for 48th and sophomore Nico Bollini shot 220 to tie for 78th.
