TEXAS HAS A DREAM DAY, TITLE IN SIGHT

University of Texas coach Eddie Reese described today's second day of competition at the NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships as "the kind of day you dream about. We've never had a day like this before, placing a finalist in every event, including diving."
Texas did more than place a man in every event. The Longhorns won both relays and Matt Ulrickson took the 100m backstroke from lane 2. Going into tonight's competition, the Longhorns were 22 points ahead of Auburn, the defending champion. On paper, today was to be Auburn's best day. Instead, Texas pulled ahead by 125 points and all but iced the team title.
With one day of competition left, Texas leads with 416 points to Auburn's 291. The team standings (top 20):

1. Texas 416
