Cal (14-5, 3-2) vs. USC (20-2, 2-1)
When: 10 AM PT
Where: Spieker Aquatics Complex
TV: Pac-12 Networks (Jim Watson play-by-play, Chris Dorst analyst)
The Golden Bears' season has been a tale of two teams. The Bears have dominated against weaker teams (teams ranked 6th or lower) but have yet to beat a team ranked higher than them (losing twice to Furd and UCLA, once to Pacific...often by a close margin). Bears actually have not played USC, the defending NCAA Champs, yet this year. Can the Bears finally find a way to beat a top team?
Who to watch for the Bears:
Collin Smith (29 goals) and Aleksa Saponjic (28 goals) lead the Bears in scoring this season, while other stat leaders include senior Giacomo Cupido with 27 assists, Smith and Cupido with 25 steals apiece, sophomores Thomas Agramonte and Colin Mulcahy with 22 ejections earned, and Mulcahy with 12 field blocks. Mulcahy and freshman Farrel South were outstanding last weekend.
Up Next: The rest of the regular seasons matches after today (vs. Santa Clara, vs. UC Irvine, at Stanfurd) will all be televised on the Pac-12 Networks.
