Nevada bounced back after a bad second round and shot an even-par 288, and finished the tournament with a 21-over 885. This is the sixth time this season that Nevada has finished in the top-5.

Senior Josh Baskins fired and even-par 72 in the final round and finished in 11th with a three-over 219. Senior Ryan Mulvany shot a two-over 74 and finished tied for 13th with a six-over 222.
