LOS ANGELES - Cory Whitsett shot a 3-under 68 to help Alabama to take a four-shot lead after two rounds of the NCAA Division I men's championships on Wednesday at Riviera Country Club.
The Crimson Tide were 4-over 572. UCLA is alone in second.
Thomas Pieters of Illinois shot a second-round 68 and led by two shots over first-round leader, Anton Arboleda of UCLA and Florida's Tyler McCumber.
