Crimson Tide's streak snapped, loses to Houston

LOS CABOS, Mexico -- Top-ranked Alabama failed to win a tournament for the first time in nearly a calendar year, snapping an 11-tournament winning streak by finishing one-shot back of No. 11 Houston in the SMU Querencia Cabo Collegiate.

Alabama shot the lowest round of the day with a 2-over 286 on the par-71, 6,945-yard Querencia Golf Club to finish at 12-over 864, but Houston's 6-over 290 was enough to hold on for the win at 863. Baylor finished third at 18-over 870, Kentucky was fourth at 872 while Vanderbilt and SMU rounded out the top five at 875 (+23).

Prior to the Cabo Collegiate, Alabama's last defeat was a tie for second in Las Vegas a season ago.

True freshman Robby Shelton led Alabama for the second consecutive tournament and the third time in six events with a 1-under-par 212. He shot 1-under 70 in the final round to post a third place finish, which is his fourth top-five of the season.

Fellow true freshman Gavin Moynihan and senior Bobby Wyatt both carded top-10 finishes as well. Moynihan posted the best finish of his young career with a tie for sixth at 2-over 215 after an even-par 70 on Tuesday. Wyatt fired a 1-under 70 in the final round to tie for eighth at 3-over 216.

The nation's No. 1 golfer Trey Mullinax shot 75 in the final round to count as the Tide's fourth score. He tied for 38th overall at 12-over 225. Cory Whitsett's 77 was dropped from the team total on Tuesday as he finished tied for 52nd. His 17-over 230 marked his highest total in his 44-tournament career.
