RUSTON, La. - Sophomore Andrew Freeman fired two rounds of 73 and sits in a tie for 31st with 146 to lead the Tulane men's golf team after the first day of competition at the Louisiana Tech/Squire Creek Classic.

Freeman's two-over-par was nearly matched by teammates Michael Thompson and Bill Gutknecht, who finished the afternoon with three-over 147, and in a tie for 39th overall. Thompson carded a first-round score of 74 while shooting a 73 in round two while Gutknecht turned in a 73 on his first trip around the course and a 74 at the end of the second round.

"We had some guys that struggled a little bit adapting to a different type of green, but they fought through it," Tulane coach Tom Shaw said. "We fought hard and played better during the second round than we did in the first round, and hopefully that will continue tomorrow."

The Green Wave's total of 596 after rounds of 300 and 296 place the squad in a three-way tie for 15th with host Louisiana Tech and Arkansas-Little Rock. Ole Miss leads all teams with a day on score of 565.

"We expect to come out strong tomorrow, everybody's positive and enthusiastic even though we had a difficult day today," Shaw added.

The 2005 Louisiana Tech/Squire Creek Classic concludes on Wednesday with a single round beginning at 8:30 a.m. at Squire Creek Country Club in Choudrant, La.
