HUMBLE — The UTSA men's golf team shot its second straight four-over-par 292 and is in 11th place after 36 holes of the Bayou City Collegiate Championship, which is being contested at The Golf Club of Houston (par 72/6,897 yards).

No. 15 Houston extended its lead to nine strokes after registering an 11-under 277 on Saturday, and the co-hosts are at 19-under (557). No. 21 Texas is in second (566), followed by No. 29 South Carolina (571), No. 19 Arkansas (573) and No. 31 Baylor (574). Houston's Wesley McClain leads all players at seven-under 137 (68-69).
