— Following a stellar Day 1 at the NCAA men's golf championships, Oklahoma State's second round took a turn for the worse.

Ian Davis shot an even-par 70 Wednesday, but a pair of 74s from Jordan Niebrugge and Kevin Dougherty and Patrick Winther's 75 left the Cowboys at 13-over for the day and 12-over for the tournament — dropping them from seventh to 25th place in the process.

“If we can play worse, I can't imagine it,” said OSU coach Mike McGraw. “But I always believe that something good is going to happen, and hey, why not us tomorrow?”

The Cowboys will enter Thursday's round 24 shots back of first-place Georgia Tech (12-under) and a dozen strokes behind eighth-place Texas A&M. The top eight schools will advance to Friday's match play.

Talor Gooch shot 6-over-par 76, but his score was not counted toward the Cowboys' cumulative number.

The team's five golfers carded just nine birdies total, three coming from Davis.
