MILTON, Ga. (AP) - Anders Albertson shot a 3-under 67 on Wednesday to help Georgia Tech top the team leaderboard in the NCAA tournament, and Arizona State freshman Jon Rahm followed his opening 61 with a 72 to remain in front with one round left in the individual competition.

Georgia Tech had its second straight 6-under 274 to reach 12 under on the Capital City Club's Crabapple Course. California was a stroke back, and defending champion Texas followed at 10 under. The top eight schools after the third round Thursday will advance to team match play.

Rahm had a 7-under 133 total for a one-stroke lead over Arkansas' Nicolas Echavarria and UCF's Greg Eason. Echavarria had a 64, and Eason shot 66.

Alabama was fourth in the team standings at 9 under, followed by Arkansas and Illinois at 3 under, first-round leader Arizona State at 2 under and Texas A&M at even par.

Ollie Schniederjans added a 68 for Georgia Tech, Seth Reeves shot 69, and Shun Yat Hak had a 70. Bo Andrews shot a 72 that didn't count in the team total.
