TUCSON, Ariz. - The University of Arizona continued its strong play in Sunday's final round of the PING-U.S. Collegiate Championships, but couldn't catch tournament-winner Texas, who won the event by two strokes.

Texas held a nine-stroke lead heading into Sunday's final round and, once again, Arizona made it close by carding its second straight sub-par team total. The Wildcats' 284 (-4) total shaved seven strokes off the Longhorn lead, but it was UT's depth that made the difference. Three Texas individuals finished in the top-20 places to give the squad a three-round total of 859 (-5) and the two-stroke win over Arizona. No team, however, played the final 36 holes better than Arizona's cumulative five-under-par tally, while UA's 861 total was the team's second-lowest total of the year.

Leading the way for Arizona was sophomore Chris Nallen, whoposted a three-round 206 (-10) to finish in second place individually. It was a career-low tournament for Nallen, and his total tied for the 10th best score in UA history in both aggregate total and in relation to par. The native of Blairstown, N.J., shot a final-round 68 (-4) to break 70 for the fourth time in his last six rounds played. Oklahoma State's Hunter Mahan carded a three-under 69 Sunday to claim individual medalist honors at 204 (-12). Texas' John Klauk finished third at 208 (-8)

UA junior Ricky Barnes finished in a tie for 20th place with a three-round 221 (+5). For Barnes, who was two-over on Sunday, it was his fourth top-20 finish of the season. Junior Reid Hatley and freshman Kipp Riehle tied for 24th at 222 (+6), while sophomore Andy Connell finished tied for 34th place at 224 (+8). Connell, who shot a one-under 71 on Sunday, was a collective four-under par over the last 36 holes.

The 54-hole, 10-team tournament was contested at Tucson National Golf Course, a par 72, 7,094-yard layout. The Wildcats will next be in action on April 12-13 at the Savane/ASU Thunderbird Invitational in Tempe, Ariz.
