Hey BigE, seen any scores yet? see on the A-10 web site tweets, GW came in 3rd over FAU
Tournament: Atlantic 10 Match Play Championship
Location: Weston, Fla. (Weston Hills, C.C.)
Finish: 2nd of 8
The short story: Senior Jamie Clare won all three of his individual matches over two days and VCU pushed Dayton to the limit in Tuesday's finale on the way to a runner-up finish at the A-10 Match Play Championship.
VCU and Dayton played to a 3-3 tie in Tuesday's title match, but the Flyers earned the tournament title via the total strokes tiebreaker.
Despite Tuesday's loss, the Rams acquitted themselves nicely. As a team, VCU shot a combined 12-under during Tuesday's final rounds.
Clare, who was dominant during the tournament, toppled Dayton's Caleb Wolters 3 and 1 Tuesday. The Rams also received victories from Junior Osama Khan and freshman Alston Newsom.
VCU advanced to Tuesday's title match via match play wins over St. Bonaventure (3.5-2.5) and Florida Atlantic (3-3, Rams advance via tiebreaker), which was the lone non-Atlantic 10 Conference squad participating.
The tournament kicked off VCU's spring season. The Rams won the inaugural A-10 Match Play title last season and have won the last three Atlantic 10 Conference Championships.
Clare was 3-0 during the tournament. He topped Patrick Sheerer of St. Bonaventure 4 and 3, as well as Ricky Hendler of Florida Atlantic 2up before rolling into Tuesday's match.
Osama Khan nailed back-to-back 30-foot putts on holes No. 17 and 18 to help VCU secure the tiebreaker in its match with Florida Atlantic Monday.
