No. 1 seed UCLA men’s water polo (24-2, 7-0 MPSF) enters the NCAA tournament on a two-game skid from the MPSF tournament – its first two losses of the season.

“We can really see that if we don’t play the right way and play the way we need to, the result that shows,” said senior goalkeeper Garret Griggs.
Deja vu is the feeling of having already experienced the present situation.
In 2022, UCLA defeated USC in double overtime to conclude its regular season. It then beat Washington & Jefferson, scoring 25 goals, in the first round of the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation tournament.
The Bruins coasted to their second-largest victory of the year and lowered their magic number for the conference title to two.
