MEMPHIS, Tenn. - Tying an SEC high, the Mississippi State men's golf team turned its ninth Top 10 of the season with an eighth-place 910 card in the Memphis Intercollegiate.

Behind John Darden's 73, MSU matched its first-round 309 Tuesday. The Bulldogs also turned in another win against an in-state foe in Southern Miss, improving the season record against Magnolia State opponents to 7-2-1.

Darden's final-round 1-over-par card secured his first Top 15 of the season, while Chad Ramey issued his team-best eighth Top 25 clip this year.

Axel Boasson's 230 was highlighted by a second-round eagle-birdie-birdie-birdie stretch that vaulted him into the Top 15 momentarily.

Seniors Clay Bounds and Alex Rowland rounded out the Bulldog leaderboard with a 232 and 236, respectively.

The Bulldogs return to the course on May 20 for the three-day, 36-hole SEC Championship at the Sea Island Golf Club in St. Simon's Island, Ga. Until then, MSU fans can follow the men's golf program on Facebook at facebook.com/mstateMG and on Twitter @mstateMG.
