College CentralThe Arizona State men's golf team set a Thunderbird Invitational record with a 40-under 824 (281-270-273) and won its tournament for the fourth time in five seasons by eight strokes on Saturday over USC. Chez Reavie and Brady Stockton both tied for fifth with a 10-under 206.
 
The top five team scores registered in the top 10 tournament list, as ASU, USC, Pepperdine, TCU and Oklahoma all were 24-under or better (see top 10 lists at bottom or results). ASU has now won its tournament in 11 of the past 15 seasons. ASU has finished first or second in its tournament every year beginning with 1994.
 
ASU won the event over a strong field which included second-ranked Texas, fourth-ranked Arizona, fifth-ranked UNLV, seventh-ranked TCU and 10th-ranked UCLA. ASU entered the tournament ranked 22nd according to Golfweek.
 
Reavie's fifth-place finish gave him his eighth top 10 finish in 10 events this year and his 65 in the final round is a career low. Freshman Alejandro Canizares, who won the National Invitational in Tucson on March 30-April 1, is at 12-under in his past six rounds after finishing tied for seventh with an 8-under 208.
 
The 10-under 206 (67-70-69) by Stockton also is a career best.
 
ASU will next compete at the Pac-10 Championships on April 28-30 in Los Angeles. ASU has won the Pac-10 title 11 times and has won it six times in the past eight years.
