MADISON, Miss. - The Ole Miss men's golf team shot 295 in the final round of the BancorpSouth Intercollegiate Tuesday at Reunion Golf and Country Club to finish third.

The wind picked up on Tuesday, but North Florida blistered the course, shooting a 10-under 278 to overtake both Florida and Ole Miss for the team title.  The Ospreys finished with a total of -18 under 846, while Florida was one back at 847.  Ole Miss finished 3-under at 861.

"First off, congratulations to the University of North Florida," head coach Ernest Ross said.  "I thought they played one of the best collegiate rounds of golf this year.  In this wind, to shoot 10-under is fantastic.  Our guys got the wind knocked out of their sails early in the day, when we didn't get off to a very good start.  Fighting through this wind, we didn't come up with everything we needed to.  I am proud of them for the progress we've made this year.  Finishing third in this tournament is still not bad. We stayed close with Florida and North Florida for a long time, and we'll build from here."

Florida's Tyson Alexander captured medalist honors, shooting an 11-under 205, paced by an opening round 64.  His teammate, Tim McKenney, claimed runner-up honors at 10-under 206.  He fired a tournament record 63 in the first round.  Santa Clara's Scott Travers finished third at 210.

Ole Miss freshman Pete Kellermann tied for seventh with a 68-71-74-213 for his best finish as a Rebel. 

"Pete had a great tournament," Ross said.  "He was 5-under going into today and made the turn at 2-under.  He really showed that he can play and handle the pressure of big time college golf.  We are very pleased with him. I know he didn't finish the back nine quite as well, but it's a good learning experience."

Local product Jonathan Randolph carded a 72-72-73-217 to finished tied for 17th.  It's the first time this spring the reigning SEC Player of the Week hasn't finished in the top 10 in a tournament.

The Rebels are off until the SEC Championships April 16-18 at Sea Island, Ga.

"We'll take this same lineup to SECs," Ross said.  "We're getting close to being a team that can contend for an SEC title."
