CALLAWASSIE ISLAND, S.C. - The Georgetown University men's golf team holds an eight-stroke lead over Xavier after the second round of The BIG EAST Men's Golf Championship was suspended late Monday afternoon due to inclement weather.

The second round will be completed on Tuesday morning followed by the third and final round of the Championship. The Hoyas were three over par with Xavier at 11-over par. Marquette was third at 16-over par followed by Butler (+22), Seton Hall (+23), DePaul (+24), St. John's (+29), Villanova (+40) and Creighton (+44). Sophomore Sam Madsen (Madison, Wis./Edgewood [Cardinal Gibbons]) is third overall at one under par through 12 holes in the second round, seven strokes behind Seton Hall's Lloyd Jefferson Go. Xavier's Jose Montaño was second at two-under-par.

Sophomore Cole Berman (Philadelphia, Pa./The Haverford School) is at even-par for the tournament, fourth individually, with 13 holes completed in the second round. Sophomore Jack Musgrave (Chesterton, Ind./Andrean) was at 1-over par through 15 holes, pulling into a tie for fifth place.

Freshman Harrison Rhoades (Raleigh, N.C./Needham Broughton) rounds out the four Hoyas in the top 10 in 10th-place. He is 3-over par through 14 holes in the second round.

Freshman Kevin Jackson (Atlanta, Ga./The Marist School) is 34th, at 14-over par through 15 holes.

The team winner of the nine-team event will earn the BIG EAST's automatic berth into the 2016 NCAA Tournament field. Should the individual champion not be a member of the winning team, he will also earn a spot in the NCAA Championship field.
