SAN ANTONIO, Texas - With another impressive performance, University of Houston freshman Roman Robledo moved into a 2-stroke lead during the second round of the Lone Star Invitational at Briggs Ranch Golf Club.

A day after firing a career-best 66, the Harlingen, Texas, native fell just shy of that mark by one stroke with another spectacular round. Robledo birdied three of his first six holes and rallied from his lone bogey of the day on the par-3 eighth hole with his fourth birdie on the front nine on the day.

Following a par to open the back nine, Robledo drained a 40-yard wedge shot for eagle on the par-5 11th hole and then finished his round with seven consecutive pars for a 65. Heading into Wednesday's final round, he stood at 134, two strokes ahead of Baylor's Joakim Mikkelsen and New Mexico's John Catlin, both of whom are ranked among the nation's top 100 players by Golfweek.

"Roman's play has been absolutely spectacular," head coach Jonathan Dismuke said. "He has hit so many quality shots and manages his game so well. He looks like a (PGA) Tour player out there right now. "

Playing as an individual, junior Will Dusenbury rebounded impressively from a challenging opening round to shoot 69 and moved into a tie for 62nd place at 150. The League City, Texas, native provided one of the tournament's most exciting highlights of the day with a hole-in-one on the 200-yard eighth hole.

"Will made a tremendous comeback," Dismuke said. "He hasn't figured out how good he is, but we have a lot of confidence in him. He struggled Sunday but came back with a great round."

Unfortunately, Robledo and Dusenbury were the only two Cougars to shoot under par in Monday's action. Sophomore Curtis Reed was tied for 23rd at 144, while sophomore Jesse Droemer was tied for 42nd at 147. Junior James Ross stood in a tie for 51st place at 148.

Junior Joseph Reynolds stood in 84th with a score of 167.

"We were sloppy today and didn't do the little things well," Dismuke said. "We hit the ball off the tee out of play. We missed a lot of putts inside 10 feet. It was just a sloppy performance overall, but we will regroup, address some things tonight and be ready for the final round."

As a team, the Cougars fell to sixth place with a 36-hole total of 572. No. 16 New Mexico maintained the lead at 560, four strokes ahead of Texas A&M. No. 42 North Texas (567), No. 34 Arizona (569) and No. 18 Baylor (570) rounded out the top-five team leaders.

The tournament wraps up with the final 18 holes teeing off at 8 a.m., Tuesday.

From there, the Cougars will compete at the Royal Oaks Intercollegiate in Dallas on Oct. 31-Nov. 1.
