Las Vegas, Nev. – Kyle Scott shot a steady 72 to pace Georgia Tech Saturday, and the 4th-ranked Yellow Jackets matched their first-round score of 294 and stand in fifth place after the second round of the Southern Highlands Collegiate Masters.

Scott, a senior from Johannesburg, South Africa, had two birdies and two bogeys on his card to remain at even-par 144 for 326 holes, tied for seventh place individually, nine shots off the pace of Texas A&M’s Jordan Russell. Russell added a 1-under 71 to his first-round 64 and stands at 9-under 135.

John-Tyler Griffin and James White each shot 74 for the Yellow Jackets Friday, while freshman Richard Werenski added a 75 to complete the Tech scoring. Griffin is tied for 10th place at 1-over-par 145, while White is tied for 17th place at 148.

“We let it get away from us a little today,” said head coach Bruce Heppler. “We got off to a tough start, got it back to 1-over at the 13th hole, then struggled on the last five holes. We played pretty well overall, but played the 15th, 16th and 17th poorly.”

California was the hot team Saturday, getting four subpar scores and shooting a 12-under 276 for the round to take the 36-hole lead. The Bears stand at 6-under-par 570, the only team under par for 36 holes, six strokes ahead of first-round leader Texas A&M (even-par 576), and 10 clear of top-ranked Oklahoma State (4-over 580). No. 2 UCLA, which shot 5-under par Saturday, is in fourth place at 8-over 584. Tech has a 36-hole total of 588.

Arizona State, Duke, UNLV, TCU and No. 7 Texas round out the top 10 teams in the 15-team field, which includes eight of the nation’s top 25 teams.

The Yellow Jackets begin the final round off the first tee at 11 a.m. Eastern time Sunday.
