Junior Matt Ball Jr. (Richmond, Va.) placed 21st for the Rams at 3-over (73-75-71=219). Ball registered 13 birdies during the tournament, fifth most in the field.
Also for VCU, junior Rocky Khara (Sebring, Fla.) was 40th (72-74-78=224), while freshman Jake McNulty (Port Perry, Ontario) and sophomore Simon Taylor (Nuremburg, Germany) tied for 73rd.
