The Cavaliers weren’t quite as potent on Day Two of the John Burns Intercollegiate, but they remain the team in charge.

Virginia fired a 5-under 283 on Thursday at Wailua Golf Course, moving to 25 under overall but seeing the team’s lead shrink from eight to six heading into Friday’s final round. The No. 9 Cavaliers are looking for their fourth win of the 2016-17 season.

Texas A&M, ranked 25th, fired a 7-under 281 to stay in second place but move within six at 19 under. No. 20 UNLV sits third at 10 under with No. 44 BYU and Santa Clara T-4 at 6 under.

The individual lead did switch, though. Virginia’s Jimmy Stanger was four ahead after an opening 10-under 62 and birdied his first hole of Round 2, but from there played 3-over golf for a 74 to sit at 8 under. He moved three behind the Aggies’ Chandler Phillips, who fired a bogey-free 66 to reach 11 under.

Cal’s Collin Morikawa and Santa Clara’s Hayden Shieh both shot 66 to jump 11 spots to a tie for third at 7 under.

Virginia boasts four players in the top ten, with Stanger joined by Derek Bard (T-5, 6 under), Danny Walker (T-9, 4 under) and Andrew Orischak (T-9, 4 under). The Aggies have two in the top 15 besides Phillips, with Kavan Eubank (T-5, 6 under) and Brandon Smith (T-14, 3 under) also in that range.
