The Buccaneers are currently at 2-over par (291-287=578), after shooting a 1-under-par 287 in Saturday morning's round. Host Furman University leads the event by two strokes at 12-under-par (282-282=564) after firing consecutive 282's in the first two rounds of play. Freshman Cennydd Mills (Cardiff, Wales) fired a second-round 3-under-par 69 to propel him into a tie for eighth at 1-under-par (74-69=143). Buccaneer juniors Adam Riddering (Maple Grove, Minn.) and James Johnson (Barbados) finished the second day of the tournament in a tie for 16th at 1-over-par.
