TALKING POINTS
  • Freshman Hanish Nagrani (-6) enjoyed a breakout performance and tied for sixth overall to spur VCU at the AutoTrader.com College Classic.
  • VCU finished 3-under and tied with Georgia Southern for seventh among a field that included top-40 squads Kentucky, South Florida and Mercer. Host Georgia State (-19) earned the team trophy by a two-stroke margin over South Florida (-17). South Alabama (-15) was third, followed by Chattanooga (-9), Kentucky (-8) and Mercer (-5).
  • Nagrani shot a 2-under 70 Tuesday – which followed a sizzling 68 during Monday's second round – to finish 6-under (72-68-70=210), four strokes behind tournament champion Chase Koepka of South Florida.
  • The performance was Nagrani's best in three tournaments as a Ram and was 12 strokes better than his previous low three weeks ago at the VCU Shootout.
  • Nagrani carded a tournament-best 44 pars in 54 holes, including 16 Tuesday.
  • Matt Ball Jr. (70-73-73=216) tied for 21st for VCU, while younger brother Adam was 36th (70-73-76=219).
WHAT'S NEXT
The Rams will have a short turnaround before hitting the road again. VCU will head to Powells Point, N.C. for the ODU/Outerbanks Intercollegiate Oct. 20-22 at Kilmarlich Golf Club. The Rams placed sixth in a field of 18 at the tournament last year and placed two players in the top 10.
