USC regrouped after a poor opening-round to shoot 11-under 277 Monday afternoon at the Bruin Wave Invitational and take a five-shot lead at El Caballero Country Club in Tarzana, Calif.

With Doris Chen leading at 5-under 139 and Kyung Kim part of a three-way tie for second with UCLA's Alison Lee and Oklahoma State's Julie Yang at 4 under, the second-ranked Trojans lead at 3 under overall while top-ranked UCLA sits second at 2 over.

Pepperdine is third at 5 over, Oklahoma State is fourth at 15 over and Arizona is fifth at 18 over.

The Bruins won last week's Allstate Sugar Bowl Intercollegiate while the Trojans finished second. Earlier this spring, it was USC getting the upper hand on UCLA by winning the Regional Challenge.
