The graduate transfer from Reno, Nev., tied for 11th with an even-par 216 (73-68-75) to fuel Nebraska's tie for second. Duan's career-best-matching 68 (-4) in the second round on the 6,300-yard, par-72 layout at TPC River's Bend in Maineville, Ohio, helped the Huskers to their best-ever Big Ten finish and their best conference finish since 1984 (2nd, Big Eight). Duan entered the final round of the championship in a tie for third place.
