GUADALAJARA, Mexico -- Swedens Anna Nordqvist and South Koreas So Yeon Ryu each birdied the final hole for a share of the second-round lead with Thailands Pornanong Phatlum on Friday in the Lorena Ochoa Invitational Nordqvist and Ryu shot 5-under 67 to match Phatlum at 9-under 135 at Guadalajara Country Club. Nordqvist and Ryu played in the same group. "Im always really happy to play with Anna," Ryu said. "We have so much fun always, so I love it. We pretty much played so well, especially on the back-nine. We hit a really great shot and she made every birdie putt. I was really excited to see her, to see how she is playing." Nordqvist is winless on the tour since the 2009 LPGA Tour Championship. "Were only halfway through and, obviously, the best golfers in the world are here so you cant really think about winning or leading the tournament right know," Nordqvist said. "We have two more days, so you have to try to play your game and put low scores out there." Phatlum, the first-round leader in the 36-player event, had a 69. "Im very happy with my score, but the putting not very good," Phatlum said. "I just missed a few short putts." South Koreas Inbee Park was a stroke back along with Americans Lexi Thompson and Gerina Piller. Thompson had a 64 for the best round the first two days. Piller shot 65, and Park had a 68. The 18-year-old Thompson won the LPGA Malaysia last month for her second tour title. "I just went into today playing fearless and just committed to my lines," Thompson said. "I dropped a few more putts today, and that always helps." The top-ranked Park swept the first three major championships of the season and has three other LPGA Tour wins this season. Shes winless in eight starts since the U.S. Womens Open in late June. Second-ranked Suzann Pettersen and No. 3 Stacy Lewis were tied for ninth at 6 under. Pettersen had a 68. The Norwegian player is coming off a successful title defence in the LPGA Taiwan, her third victory in her last five starts and fourth of the season. Lewis shot a 66. Michelle Wie had a 73 to drop into a tie for 20th at 2 under. She won the 2009 tournament for the first of her two LPGA Tour victories. Defending champion Cristie Kerr was 27th at 2 over, following a 77 with a 67. Tournament host Lorena Ochoa won 27 LPGA Tour titles before retiring in 2010. "Its been great. I love Mexico," Piller said. "Most people dont know this, but my maiden name is Mendoza. I dont speak much Spanish, but I love the food, love the people and its just a great tournament. I never got to play with Lorena, but shes been a huge inspiration." Kamil Grabara Liverpool Jersey .

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- Oakland had a chance to upset No. 5 Michigan State on Saturday. It just couldnt keep up with the Spartans on the glass. Duke Mondy scored 24 points, but the Golden Grizzlies were outrebounded by nine during a 67-63 loss to Branden Dawson and Michigan State. "There are no moral victories here at Oakland," coach Greg Kampe said, thanking Tom Izzo for scheduling his team. "We passed that point of being close long ago. We were close again and just couldnt beat them." Mondy, the nations leader in steals, had seven swipes for the Golden Grizzlies (2-9). Travis Bader, who grew up in the shadows of Michigan State, had 18 points and Corey Petros added 11 for Oakland, winless in 12 games in the series. I had seven steals?" Mondy said. "I didnt even know that. I have great anticipation. Im not a gambler, but I like to gamble sometimes." Bader went 4 for 14 from long range to move within 56 3-pointers of J.J. Redicks NCAA record, drawing rave reviews from Izzo. "I love that kid," Izzo said of Bader, the son of his former director of basketball operations. "I grew up with that kid, and he grew up with me. If ever a kid deserves success, its him. I hope he breaks the record." Izzo had no idea how Dawson would play after he challenged the enigmatic forward following a disappointing effort against North Carolina. He got the answer he was looking for in a home game for Oakland at The Palace. Dawson had 16 points and 13 rebounds for the short-handed Spartans (8-1), who were rusty and turnover-prone after a 10-day break. "I thought Dawson really responded today," Izzo said. "I got after him pretty good." Dawson took only two shots and had two turnovers in 17 minutes during Michigan States 79-65 home loss to the Tar Heels on Dec. 4. It was a much different story against the Golden Grizzllies, with Dawson going 7 for 13 from the field and blocking three shots in 36 minutes.dddddddddddd "There was a different mindset and definitely a different approach," Dawson said. "Id just had one of the worst games since Ive been here against North Carolina. So the guys all pushed me, and Coach talked to me." Keith Appling scored 18 of his 21 points in the second half for the Spartans, and Adreian Payne had 20 points and 10 rebounds. Michigan State played without leading scorer Gary Harris, who is nursing an ankle injury. The Spartans also were without big men Matt Costello (mononucleosis) and Kenny Kaminski (academic suspension). The Golden Grizzlies jumped to a 20-12 lead, taking advantage of the Spartans sloppiness. Oakland had four assists on its first five baskets, while Michigan State was recording one assist and committing seven turnovers. "The start they had kept them in the game," Izzo said. "If wed gotten them down early, maybe some of those losses theyve had wouldve mounted." Michigan State managed to rally for a 35-31 lead early in the second half on two jumpers by Appling. But Oakland wouldnt go away. Baders third 3 tied it at 50 with 7:44 to play. He was 4 for 14 from long range. An Appling 3 and a Bader turnover helped Michigan State take a five-point advantage, its largest of the day to that point. Another Bader turnover and a layup and free throw by Appling built the cushion to 58-50 and seemed to create some daylight. "They were just so physical," Kampe said. "A couple of our bigger backups are out for the season, and we just dont have the size to match them. We werent physical enough, and Dawson had his way down in there." The Golden Grizzlies closed to 60-56 with 2:42 left. But Travis Trice hit a 3 at the end of the shot clock to give the Spartans a seven-point edge. ' ' '
