The 54-hole event runs through Wednesday at the par-72, 7,452-yard Jimmie Austin OU Golf Club. Virginia is the No. 8 seed in the 14-team field. The top five finishers from six NCAA regional sites advance to the NCAA Championships set for May 25-30 at Karsten Creek Golf Club in Stillwater, Okla.

Freshman WeiWei Gao (Cebu City, Philippines) will travel as the team’s alternate.
Walsh, the 2018 ACC Individual Champion and an All-ACC selection, leads the team with a 70.65 stroke average and has topped the Hoos in scoring in seven of the team’s last nine tournaments.
The Cavaliers are paired with No. 7 seed BYU and No. 9 seed San Diego State during the opening round. Those teams start play Monday at 8:25 a.m. CST from the 1st tee.
