GULF SHORES, Ala. ( -- Four of UCF's golfers were 11-over at the conclusion of the Conference-USA Championship Wednesday at The Peninsula Golf & Racquet Club. The No. 44-ranked Knights finished third as a team.

UCF (+41) entered the final round four strokes back of the runner-up position. The Knights made up ground on Wednesday, but No. 48 East Carolina (+40) held off the UCF charge and held on to the runner-up spot. 20th-ranked Tulane ran away with the title, putting up a score of +13. No. 33 SMU was fourth at +50.
