NCAA men's golf championship: Oregon advances to semis to try to defend its title, USC falls in quarterfinals

Pac-12 Network Roundup, May 30


Oregon and USC men's golf advance to NCAA quarterfinals. 

Both USC and Oregon punched tickets to Monday's action during Sunday's third and final preliminary round at the NCAA men's golf championship

Pac-12 student-athletes wrapped up the final day of the 2017 NCAA West Preliminaries hosted by the University of Texas in Austin. With the country split between West Prelims and East Prelims, student-athletes with the top 12 times/marks and the best 12 relay teams at both the East and West Preliminary Rounds sites advanced through to the NCAA Championships in Eugene, Oregon, June 7-10.

Since there are no multis in preliminary competition, the top 24 decathlon and heptathlon marks in the nation earn an automatic berth to Eugene.

Oregon joined UCLA by punching a ticket to the Women's College World Series Saturday in Eugene and is one of four Pac-12 teams in action Saturday afternoon and evening, with Arizona, Utah and Washington being the others. This page will update as games go final.

After two rounds of action at the NCAA men's golf championship, some clarity is coming to the standings. Entering Sunday's final preliminary round -- after which only the top 15 teams will advance -- this is the Pac-12's situation: USC is in excellent shape, Oregon is on the bubble, and Stanford and Arizona State both have work to do to survive team play past the weekend.
