    The Southern Illinois University men's golf team placed 16th out of 21 teams at the ASU Red Wolf Intercollegiate tournament hosted by Arkansas State in Jonesboro, Ark.

    The Salukis dug themselves a deep hole with an opening round team score of 321, but came back to record back-to-back rounds of 301 to finish 71-over par. SIU finished 61 strokes off the pace set by ASU, which won the tournament for the sixth time since its inception in 1997.

    "We were very capable of finishing higher, but we struggled in the first round with the rain, cold and wind," said SIU head coach Leroy Newton. "We just weren't mentally and emotionally strong enough to play the first round and went into a little funk. As the weather got better, we played better."

    SIU's Drew Novara led the team with a 14-over par for the tournament to finish in 36th place out of 109 golfers at the 6,565-yard, par 71 RidgePointe Country Club. Five strokes behind him was teammate Caleb Harms at 19-over, followed by Wade Thompson at 20-over par.

    "We're hitting the ball pretty well, but when we make mistakes, it costs us big, big numbers," Newton said. "They're realizing that you can't three-putt from 15 feet, and you can't have seven and eights on the scorecard."
