MARICOPA, Ariz. –

Humphreys opening score of 66 was the second lowest round of the day.

Hopoi is a stroke back of the top 10 after moving 13 spots up the leaderboard in today’s second round. Hopoi carded 144 (75-69, E), and his second round score of 69 was tied for the second lowest score of the round.

The Broncos are in third in the team standings with a combined score of 580 (290-290, +4).

“Brian played great today and Donny had a really solid second round,” Boise State head coach Dan Potter said. “Those guys kept us in it. We had a few guys struggle in the same round, which we haven’t had happen until today. We’ll have to have all five in it tomorrow to make a run, so I’m anxious to see how we bounce back and finish tomorrow.”

After opening the tournament with three-straight bogeys on the front nine in the first round, freshman Skyler Eubank rebounded to end the day at 3-over. Eubank shot 147 (75-72) on the day, and heads to tomorrow’s final round in the top 25 in a tie for 18th.
