Kyle Davis shot a career-low 4-under-par 68 to pace UCF Tuesday, but it was not enough to keep the Golden Knights from slipping one spot in the team standings in the Seminole Intercollegiate at Golden Eagle Country Club. UCF closed with a 3-over-par 291 and finished seventh in the 13-team field.

"We're starting to play better as a team," UCF coach Nick Clinard said. "But we struggled in certain areas that hurt us. We need to do a better job with our putting and need to eliminate careless mistakes."

Coastal Carolina entered the final round five shots behind East Tennessee State and took home the team trophy after finishing the 54-hole event at 13-under-par. The Chanticleers shot a 2-under-par 286 Tuesday and won by seven shots over N.C. State, while East Tennessee State shot a 13-over-par 301 and dropped all the way to fourth place.

N.C. State's Stephen Lewton caught 36-hole leader Dustin Johnson from Coastal Carolina by shooting a 5-under-par 67 Tuesday and then claimed medalist honors in a playoff. Johnson shot a final-round 2-under-par 70 to finish at 13-under-par in regulation.

Davis climbed all the way to eighth-place in the individual standings and tied teammate Giwon Suh at 2-under-par for the tournament. Suh shot a closing 2-over-par 74. Sonny Nimkhum shot a 1-over-par 73 Tuesday and finished his best tournament of the year at 1-under-par and tied for 12th.
