NCAA Water Polo: Cal takes on USC in this afternoon's final

Aleksa Saponjic
The NCAA college water polo season will end Sunday afternoon the same way the last 14 seasons ended: with either UCLA or USC playing for the national title. But for just the second time since 2010, USC will be making the trip alone after UCLA, the two-time defending national champion, was upset by California, 9-8, in overtime in Saturday's NCAA semifinals.  In the first semifinal, top-ranked USC beat Harvard, 19-4, to set up a rematch with the only team that has beaten the Trojans this season.

USC junior James Walters said "The excitement is crazy right now..."  "We're ready to avenge ourselves."  USC and California have met twice this season, with the Bears winning, 10-8, in September and the Trojans taking the rematch by the same score in October.

The Nor-Cal Golden Bears have always been this writers favorites, but both teams are wished the best for today's match-up.
