    HOUSTON - University of Houston freshman Matt Scobie earned his third straight top-10 finish after tying for eighth at the Rice Intercollegiate with a score of 218 on Tuesday afternoon.

    Scobie battled through a roller-coaster final round that saw him post six bogeys and five birdies with seven pars on the 7,184-yard, par-72 course at Westwood Golf Club. He opened the day with a birdie on the par-3 17th hole and went on to drain birdies on Nos. 4, 5, 12 and 14.

    "Matt has a great future ahead of him. He shows glimpses of being great and is way ahead of the developmental curve," associate head coach Chris Hill said. "He is getting more and more comfortabl in situations. He held the lead for a while Monday, and the more you are in contention, the better you will be down the road."

    In his final two tournaments of the fall campaign, the Ajax, Ontario, Canada, tied for ninth at the HBU Husky Invitational on Sept. 30-Oct. 1, 2013, and placed fifth at the Sam Houston State/Harold Funston Invitational on Oct. 7-8, 2013.

    Redshirt freshman Emmett Oh capped his tournament with a 75 Tuesday and tied for 29th at 227.

    This was the Cougars' first action since the duo competed at the Sam Houston State/Harold Funston Invitational on Oct. 7-8 at Raven Nest Golf Club in Huntsville, Texas.

    UTSA won the team title with a score of 875 to finish three strokes ahead of Sam Houston State. Cincinnati (879), Old Dominion (880) and host Rice (887) rounded out the top-5 team leaders.

    Individually, Old Dominion's Jamison Randall fired a final-round 69 to finish at 5-under-par 211 and earn medalist honors. Rice's Alex Levy finished second at 213, while UTSA's Ryan Were and Preston Stanley of Houston Baptist tied for third at 214.


    UP NEXT
    Following the Rice Intercollegiate, the Cougars open their 2014 spring season as a team at their own Bayou City Collegiate Championship. The three-day, 54-hole event will tee off Friday morning and run through Sunday afternoon at The Golf Club of Houston.
