USC won 12-10 in overtime for their third straight national championship. The hero for Cal was Zach White who came up with four goals in his final game as a Golden Bear.

Congrats to Everist's boys for another fine season, but they ran out of steam at the end, as the Trojan defense was too strong to overcome. GO BEARS!

It's storming right now in Berkeley, so the weather can't be easy for Kirk Everist and our Golden Bears to try and reclaim their throne. GO BEARS!

Here's some background info.

Host California rallied from a two-goal second half deficit on Saturday to upend Loyola Marymount 7-6 and set up a national championship men's water polo match between the nation's top-ranked teams.

No. 2 Cal meets two-time defending champ and top-ranked USC in Sunday's title game, a contest featuring the winners of the past five national crowns.

USC won the past two NCAA championships as well as in 2005. Cal won it all in 2006 and 2007 and owns 13 NCAA titles overall, more than any other program.
