The senior duo of Art Griffin and Jacques Wilson, the reigning Big South Golfer of the Week, will anchor the Bucs' lineup along with Freshman of the Week Connor Moore. Elliot Gothe will play in the number four spot while freshman Alex Scott is set to make his spring debut after competing in one tournament this fall.
Wilson is coming off his first collegiate win last week at the Bash at the Beach. Griffin (T-4th) and Moore (T-15th) put forth consistent production to hep CSU nearly take the title before finishing second. Gothe (T-15th) also played well, rebounding from a first round 77 - largely the product of two bad holes - to shoot 69 and 73 in rounds two and three.
Georgia, which will field an A and B team, headlines Monday's field. Power conference programs Florida State and Iowa, and Big South foes Gardner-Webb and High Point are also in Athens for the event.
