Yesterday morning we showed you sick video that Oklahoma State’s basketball team put together…and today we’re going to visit to the opposite end of the spectrum and show you what a wack video looks like. So here goes one from the LMU basketball team, who I guess are sick of students on campus treating them like they’re on the golf team and acting like they don’t exist…and here is what they’re doing about it.
The first two rounds might not have went 100% as I thought they would, but I got the end result right…in the NCAA Women’s Water Polo title game it will be a battle between the two beat teams, #1 Stanford against #2 USC. This will be USC’s third straight trip to the NCAA finals and this time they won’t have to worry about UCLA getting in their way.
But they will have the Cardinal who have given them plenty of problems this year. The two teams have already met three times this season…Stanford won the first match 10-7, USC took the second 10-6, and Stanford the last on April 24 by a score of 7-6 in overtime. This one should be a good one, the game starts at 8:00 ET on CBS College Sports.
The Women’s Water Polo Championship field was announced last night. In all 8 teams are participating in the tournament with 5 teams receiving automatic bids for winning their conference tournament and 3 teams, all from the MPSF, getting at large bids.
The seeding and matchups for the tournament are as follows:
- #1 Stanford (at large bid) will face #8 Pomona-Pitzer of the SCIAC
- #2 USC (at large bid) will meet the MAAC Champ #7 Marist
- #3 UCLA (MPSF Champs) will take on the WWPA Champions #6 LMU
- #4 Cal (at large bid) will play the CWPA Champs #5 Michigan
The Championship will be held May 14-16 at the Aztec Aquaplex, in San Diego.
As predicted the Michigan Wolverines women’s water polo team won the CWPA Eastern Championship title. The #8 ranked team in the country defeated Harvard (18-10), Princeton (12-8), and #14 Indiana 7-5 in route to their 3rd title in three years. Michigan’s Leah Robertson won her 3rd Eastern Championship MVP and Kiki Golden the ROY.
In the WWPA it was top seeded LMU who cruised through the tourney to win their 8th championship in the 10 years; beating UC San Diego 14-10 in the title game and UC San Bernadino (19-2) and Cal State Bakersfield (18-5) along the way. LMU sophomore Casey Flacks was named the tournaments MVP, leading the way in the title game with 3 goals.
Both Michigan and LMU will receive an automatic bid into the tournament. Their first round opponents will be announced tomorrow at 6:00 pm EST during the selection show.
