TCU shot a 284 on Thursday and tied for 19th with an 850 at the NCAA championships in Milton, Ga. Only the top eight advanced to match play.

Julien Brun led the Horned Frogs with an even-par 70. He finished with a 208, tied for 22nd.

Brun started to make a late push with back-to-back birdies on holes 5 and 6 in the second half of his round, but a bogey on the final hole dropped him back outside the top 20.

After the tournament, Brun was selected a PING First-Team All-American by the Golf Coaches Association of America for the second straight season.

He is the first TCU golfer to be selected to the first team more than once in a career.

Texas tied for third and will face Illinois on Friday in the quarterfinals of team competition.

California’s Max Homa shot a 4-under 66 to win the individual title, and his steady play carried the Bears to the top seed heading into team match play.

Softball World Series

• Texas 6, Arizona State 3: The Longhorns (50-8) rallied to score four runs with two outs in the bottom of the fifth inning, led by Kim Bruins’ two-run home run, to beat the Sun Devils in Oklahoma City. Texas advances to play Oklahoma on Friday night.

Oklahoma 7, Michigan 1: Keilani Ricketts threw a no-hitter and had 12 strikeouts in the Sooners' victory over the Wolverines. Ricketts, the Collegiate Softball Player of the Year for the second consecutive season, improved to 32-1. Oklahoma (53-4) will face Texas on Friday night. Michigan (50-12) will play Arizona State on Saturday in an elimination game. Michigan took a 1-0 lead in the third when Sierra Lawrence reached on an error and eventually scored on a play at the plate.

•  Tennessee 9, Florida 2: Melissa Brown had a two-run double in a three-run first inning, and Ellen Renfroe limited the Gators to four hits and struck out nine to help the Lady Vols (50-10) roll.

• Washington 4, Nebraska 3: Kimberlee Souza lined the first pitch in the bottom of the eighth inning over the left center-field wall to give the Huskies (44-15) the victory.

Ohio State rant

The president of Ohio State said Notre Dame was never invited to join the Big Ten because the university’s priests are not good partners, joking that “those damn Catholics” can’t be trusted, according to a recording of a meeting he attended late last year.

Gordon Gee also took shots at schools in the Southeastern Conference and Louisville, according to the recording of the December meeting of the school’s Athletic Council.

“The fathers are holy on Sunday, and they’re holy hell on the rest of the week,” Gee said to laughter at the Dec. 5 meeting attended by athletic director Gene Smith, several other athletic department members, professors and students.

The university called the statements inappropriate and said Gee is undergoing a “remediation plan” because of the remarks.

Gee was on a long-planned family vacation and not available for comment. He apologized in a statement released to the AP.

“The comments I made were just plain wrong, and in no way do they reflect what the university stands for,” he said in the statement.

“They were a poor attempt at humor and entirely inappropriate. There is no excuse for this and I am deeply sorry.”

During his comments to the Athletic Council, Gee also questioned the academic integrity of schools in the Southeastern Conference and Louisville.

Bohn blindsided

Mike Bohn said he was blindsided by Colorado’s decision to make a change at athletic director.

He thought he was doing things right.

Bohn was shocked by the recent conversation he had with chancellor Philip DiStefano, who made it clear the school wanted to head in another direction and that a switch might trigger better opportunities to raise money.

Shock turned to frustration and Bohn submitted his resignation after eight years in charge of the athletic program. He will depart on Monday.

“The insinuation that we don't have a plan is offensive at best,” Bohn said.
