RUSTON, La. — Rodolfo Cazaubon gave another dominating performance Tuesday and No. 32 North Texas won the Argent Financial Classic by four strokes over No. 15 LSU.

Cazaubon, who trailed by four strokes entering the round, shot a 5-under 67 to capture his third title of the season. UNT won for the first time this year.

The Mean Green started the final round tied with LSU, but UNT took the lead early and never looked back. The Mean Green shot the lowest round of the day at 3-under 285.

UNT’s Curtis Donahoe, playing as an individual, notched his first top-10 finish of the year with a 4-over 220 to finish in a tie for 10th.
