Men's Water Polo
Dec 2, 2018
USC men's water polo won its first NCAA title since 2013 and 10th in program history as it defeated Stanford 14-12 Sunday in Palo Alto. The Trojans got off to a hot start and even led 8-1 at one point, but the Cardinal would make it interesting in the fourth period. Down 11-4 heading into the final frame, the Cardinal went on a 7-2 run to cut it a two-point game with under a minute left. However, the Trojans would hang on to secure the Pac-12's 515th NCAA championship.
