    Baton Rouge, La. ? Junior Barrett Edens' 73 helped the No. 23 Mississippi State men's golf team move into 10th place following Friday's second round at the NCAA Baton Rouge Regional.

    The Bulldogs fired a 302 on Friday at The University Club, an eight-shot improvement from the first round. No. 10 Florida tops the leaderboard with a 2-over-par 612. The Top 5 teams advance to next week's NCAA Championships in Atlanta.

    "I thought we played better today," Coach Clay Homan said. "We made a lot of birdies and pars. However, we couldn't avoid the big number on several holes."

    Edens shaved seven shots off his opening-round score to move into a tie for 34th place with teammate Chad Ramey at 9-over (153). After carding an opening-round 75 on Thursday, Ramey shot a 78 on Friday.

    Junior Joe Sakulpolphaisan made a four-stroke improvement in the second round, carding a 75 to move into a tie for 39th with a 10-over 154.

    Senior Robi Calvesbert shot a 76 in the second round after opening play with an 81 on Thursday. Calvesbert enters Saturday's final round tied for 54th place with a 13-over 157.

    Axel Boasson rounded out the Maroon and White scoring, carding an 82 to fall into a 58th-place tie at 14-over (158).

    State will tee off Saturday's final round at 8:20 a.m. and will be paired with Wichita State and Southeastern Louisiana.
