, headlined by the 14th-ranked Wildcats and host No. 15 Duke. Other top-50 teams are No. 27 Liberty, No. 29 Tulsa (alma mater of NU assistant coach David Inglis

In its last tournament at the Olympia Fields Country Club/Fighting Illini Invitational, NU finished in sixth place, trailing this week's host, Duke, by just two strokes. Prior to that, the `Cats' strong season included a win at the Inverness Intercollegiate and a runner-up performance at NU's own Windon Memorial Classic.
The `Cats will be led this weekend by senior Nick Losole (Scottsdale, Ariz./Scottsdale Notre Dame) who will play for the chance to earn his fourth top-10 finish of the season. Losole placed a career-best second at the Fighting Illini Invitational. He is one of three different Wildcats to have top-2 finishes in NU's first three events of the 2012-13, joining Inverness medalist Jack Perry (Santa Barbara, Calif./Santa Barbara) and Windon winner John Callahan (Hinsdale, Ill./Benet Academy).
