HIGHLIGHTS: USC's Comeback Win over Pacific Propels Trojans to NCAA Bid

Ranked fourth prior to the tournament, USC entered last weekend’s Mountain Pacific Sports Federation championships under threat of missing out on the NCAA Championships for the first time in a decade. A consolation match against Pacific set the stage for their revival, and the Trojans took advantage.

A sluggish start against the the nation’s No. 2 Tigers gave way to a scoring onslaught. USA pulled away to win the third-place game 8-4 and secure an at-large bid to NCAAs.

The No. 4 seeded USC men’s water polo team breathed new life into its bid for an 11th consecutive trip to the NCAA Tournament by taking out No. 2 seeded Pacific in a decisive 8-4 Trojan victory today to finish third at the MPSF Tournament. Now 20-6 overall, USC has its eighth consecutive 20-win season in the books. In avenging a regular-season loss to the Tigers, the Trojans have put themselves in a good position for a potential at-large selection for the 2015 NCAA Tournament.
