The Volunteers posted a first round score of 272 (-12). Arizona was second at eight-under par, followed by UNLV at -4.

Freshman Philip Francis was tied for 24th at two-over par after carding an even par 71 in the first round. Craig Leslie was tied for 48th place at seven-over par, although he was one-under through 14 holes in the second round.
