    WINTER GARDEN, Fla.---Alex Wenzel fired a round of 70 to match his career-best, highlighting the University of Cincinnati men's golf team's first day at the BIG EAST/MAC Challenge. After one round, Wenzel shares team-best honors with Joe Young in a tie for 32nd place.

    The second round wasn't so kind to Wenzel as he shot a round of 80 to end the day at 150. Young carded rounds of 76 and 74 to match his teammate's score. UC's top player, Geoff Newman, struggled on Saturday, finishing at 160 after rounds of 81 and 79, his two worst rounds of the season.

    In the team standings, UC is in last place in the 12-team field, but trails Bowling Green by just one shot. Akron shot an even score of 576 to hold a two-shot lead over the hosts, Marquette.

    The final round of the BIG EAST/MAC Challenge will tee off at 7:30 a.m. on Sunday at the Orange County National Golf Club in Winter Garden, Fla.
