Liberty finished the event with a 10-over par 862 (282-278-302), closing the event with an 18-over par 302 during today's final round which featured wind gusts up to 30 MPH.
No. 7 Baylor, the tournament host, was able to weather the challenging final day to win its own tournament by 19 strokes. The Bears posted a winning score of 25-under par 827 (272-274-281), finishing ahead of No. 17 Arkansas' 6-under par 846 (283-276-287).
Baylor's Cooper Dossey was able to maintain his overnight clubhouse lead to claim medalist honors with an 11-under par 202 (66-67-69). New Mexico's Andre Garcia finished in second place with a 7-under par 206 (68-70-68).
Liberty's Isaiah Logue paced the way for the Flames, finishing in 26th place with a 2-over par 215 (71-68-76). The senior tied for the team lead with 36 pars during the 54-hole event.
The Flames' Mickey DeMorat (72-70-76), Ervin Chang (69-68-81) and Payton Taylor (70-72-76) shared 39th place with a 5-over par 218. Chang and DeMorat finished the event with a team-best 11 birdies each.
Alexandre Fuchs was the lone Flame to move up on the 73-man leaderboard during the final round, finishing the event in 46th place with a 7-over par 220 (74-72-74). The freshman carded two of his six birdies during the two-day tournament as the Flames played in the difficult afternoon playing conditions.
