On The Tee
-- Notre Dame’s starting lineup will include juniors Matthew Rushton (1), Blake Barens (3) and Liam Cox (5), as well as freshmen Ben Albin (2) and Miguel Delgado (4). Freshman Kevin Conners will play the event as an individual.

-- Earlier this week (March 6-8), the Irish finished 15th at Auburn University’s Tiger Invitational in Opelika, Alabama. Rushton shot an even-par 72 on the final day of play to lead the Irish with an 11th-place showing (74-71-72-217).

-- Three of Albin’s last six rounds have been under par, including a second-round 68 at the National Invitational Tournament (Feb. 28 – March 1). He tied for eighth at that event, which was his second top-10 finish of the season.

-- Baylor won the 2015 Border Olympics at 15-under par (280-284-285—849), while Houston placed second at 12-under par (280-284-288 – 852).
