    PALM DESERT, Calif. - The University of Houston stood in 13th place with a team score of 295 Saturday following the first round of the Wyoming Desert Intercollegiate at Classic Golf Club.

    Saturday's second round was suspended due to darkness. The players will resume at 9:30 a.m. (CST) from the hole on which they stopped play and will continue the final round with the same hole and pairing assignments as the first two rounds.

    "Conditions were absolutely perfect, so I am disappointed we didn't do a good job of driving the ball and taking advantage of our opportunities," said head coach Jonathan Dismuke, who is in his third season with the program. "We came out tight and made some poor swings early. We got off to a bad start and never moved the round back to a manageable situation.

    However, Houston is bound to move much higher in the overall team standings once the second round is completed. The Cougars were on pace to shoot a second-round team score of 7-under-par 281 with just two holes remaining before darkness stopped play, Dismuke said.

    If that total stands, it would be the third-lowest round of the tournament.

    "In the second round, we made some early birdies," Dismuke said. "Guys moved under par early. We made more birdies with fewer mistakes, and that was all the difference."

    Partial individual scores from the second round were not available as of press time. With the conclusion of the first round, sophomores Curtis Reed and Jesse Droemer led the Cougars and were tied for 34th with an opening-round 73. Freshman Roman Robledo was tied for 54th at 74, while freshman Kyle Pilgrim - competing in only his second collegiate tournament - was tied for 67th at 75. Junior James Ross was tied for 75th with a score of 76.

    UNLV led the team standings with a score of 279, while Auburn finished the first round at 280. Kent State (282), Saint Mary's (Calif.) (284) and UT Arlington (285) rounded out the top-five team leaders.

    Individually, Auburn's Niclas Carlsson led all players with a first-round 66. Teammate Blayne Barber, UNLV's Kevin Penner and Kent State's Corey Conners were tied for second at 67.

    Following the Wyoming Desert Intercollegiate, the Cougars return to action March 5-6 when they compete at the Louisiana Classic in Lafayette, La.
