USC’s Nic Porter Selected MPSF Men’s Water Polo Player of the Week
For the second time this season and fourth time in his USC career, senior goalie Nic Porter has been selected the MPSF Player of the Week. Porter made a season-high 15 saves to help anchor USC's comeback win at Stanford over the weekend while also climbing to rank No. 7 all-time in career saves at USC.
USC had trailed by four goals in the third period, but — with Porter's work in the cage — the Trojans would give up just two Cardinal goals the rest of the way. Trailing 11-10 entering the fourth, Porter and the USC defense shut out Stanford entirely in the final period on the way to a 15-11 win. The Trojans improved to 14-1 overall and to 1-1 in MPSF play with the conference road win at Stanford.
Porter is now 10 saves away from taking over as USC's No. 6 all-time saves leader. He and the Trojan are lined up to host UC Santa Barbara this Sunday (Oct. 31) at 1 p.m. at Uytengsu Aquatics Center.
