    The Southern Illinois University men's golf team fired a season-best round of 278 in the second round of the TSU Big Blue Intercollegiate earlier today and currently stands in second place out of 14 teams heading into tomorrow's final round.

    After shooting a 290 in the first round, all five Saluki golfers shot below-par in round two, as SIU carded the best round of the tournament to move within two strokes of leader UT Martin. The Salukis are 8-under par and have an eight-stroke lead over third-place South Dakota.

    Caleb Harms led Southern with back-to-back rounds of 69, which matched his career-best, and he is tied for second place at 6-under par, trailing UT Martin's Brendan Cabellero by two strokes. Wade Thompson (5th place, 3-under par) and Andrew Mitchell (6th place, 1-under par) also rank among the top 10.

    The Salukis won this same tournament a year ago, but In 10 tournaments so far this season, SIU's best finish was third place at the Frito Lay/Taco Bell Intercollegiate in mid-February.
