Foggy conditions dominated the morning round, though there was little wind to add to an already challenging course. WSU, voted the favorite to win the title by the league's coaches, shot an 8-over 288 to pace the field. The wind picked up in the afternoon session and the scores rose accordingly. The Shockers carded a second-round 293 to post a 581 (+21) for the day. Evansville is second with a 594 (+34).
