LAS VEGAS, NV -- Martin Piller carded a two-over-par 74 on Saturday and shares the lead after two rounds of the Southern Highlands Collegiate Championship at Southern Highlands Golf Course.
With a three-under 67-74=141 total, Piller is in a four-way tie for first
going into Sunday's final round.
The 10th-ranked Aggies are tied for fourth-place in the team standings with a 293-299=592 total, eight strokes behind No. 6 Georgia (584). No. 13 UCLA is in second (587), followed by No. 3 Florida (591), A&M and Arizona (592), No. 7 Clemson (593), No. 9 UNLV (593), No. 17 Georgia Tech (593), Minnesota (595), No. 4 Oklahoma State (596), No. 19 Wake Forest (597), No. 18 Arizona State (601), Washington (604), Kentucky (605) and No. 20 Texas (610).

"We fought hard but we didn't play all that well," A&M Coach J.T. Higgins said. "We played smart golf from tee to green but our short game really cost us. The good thing is that we still have a chance to win going into the last round, which is amazing considering how many shots we threw away the last couple of days."
