    PULLMAN, Wash. — The University of Colorado men’s golf team logged its best score of the four this week Wednesday, but remained stuck in the standings and finished in 11th place as the 56th annual Pac-12 Championships came to a close.

    No. 9 Stanford ran away from the field, recording the best single round of the tournament on the last day, a 10-under 340, to finish at 4-under par (1,396). That was 14 strokes better than No. 8 Oregon, which had a 6-under 344 to rise from fourth into second (1,410). Third round leader, No. 3 Arizona State, fell into third, carding a 14-over 364 for a 1,411 total; No. 16 Southern California (1,417) and No. 12 Washington (1,435) rounded out the top five.

    Colorado, ranked No. 48, posted a team score of 9-over 359 for a final score of 1,459, or 59-over par; CU flirted with 10th place much of the day but faltered late to slip back into 11th.

    Colorado is now 89-73-1 against Division I competition, so it more than exceeds the first requirement to be eligible for the NCAA Championships, which start with regional play May 14-16. The Buffs should be in good position, as they may drop into the low 50s in the national rankings, but also have played a top 50 schedule nationally (out of 302 schools).

    “Hopefully we make it, and if so, we can have a chance to redeem ourselves in the regional,” Edwards said.

    Not a great result for the Men, but hopefully they'll be able to shake it off and have a great NCAA regionals (assuming they earn a berth).

    I looked, and per http://www.ncaa.org/sites/default/files/PreChamps_DI_M_Golf_2015_Revised2.pdf (page #14) it looks like 81 teams get selected for NCAA regionals (6 regions with 13 or 14 teams in each), so hopefully the Buffs should be OK even if their ranking falls to the low 50's (although I admittedly have NO idea what the selection process is like).

    Per http://www.ncaa.org/sites/default/files/15 DI Golf Selections Announcement (REVISED).pdf, "The 2015 NCAA Division I Men's Golf Championships selections will be announced live via the Golf Channel Monday, May 4 during Morning Drive. " So, the team will know in less than a week if they're in and, if they are, where they'll be going.
