    STRONG FINAL ROUND MOVES HOOSIERS TO SIXTH Leen Finishes Second Overall

    POTTSBORO, Tex. - A rough first two rounds at the Dr. Pepper Intercollegiate left the Hoosiers in a deep hole heading into today's final round. However, after carding the second-lowest team round of the day with a 293, the squad managed to salvage the tournament and jump three spots into a tie for sixth with Nebraska.

    Randy Leen entered the final round three shots off the lead, but after both he and Minnesota's James McLean carded 73s, the top two spots remained unchanged. The second place finish should serve as a much-needed building block for Leen who, after four consecutive top 10 finishes to open the fall season, has failed to crack the top 25 in each of the Hoosiers' previous three tournaments.

    With the exception of Leen maintaining the second spot, all of IU's participants managed to improve their positioning in today's final round. With a 72 today, Josh Brewer moved up 13 spots to tie for 24th. In his first collegiate tournament, Corey Sullivan jumped 17 slots to tie for 42nd. Brent Landry went from a tie for 52nd to finish in a tie for 44th, and John Barry moved up to tie for 68th after tying for 80th yesterday.

    The Hoosiers will next travel to Huntington, West Virginia, April 10-11, for the Marshall.
