720 days. 57 games. That’s how long it had been since UCLA Men’s Water Polo had lost. Until last week. Now, they look to start a new streak against UC Berkeley.

Last Saturday, the UCLA Men’s Water Polo team lost for the first time in 720 days and their 57-game winning streak ended when they lost 8-7 to Southern Cal.

As a result of that loss, USC is now the #1 team in the country and has the #1 seed in the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Water Polo Championship tournament this weekend.

Well, when the basketball team ended its 88-game winning streak, Coach said that he was glad because now he could start coaching to win again instead of coaching not to lose.

This afternoon, Adam Wright and the Men’s Water Polo team can start a new winning streak when the face UC Berkeley in Game 3 of the MPSF Tournament. UCLA is the #2 seed in the tournament as a result of their loss to Southern Cal.

If the Bruins beat the Golden Bears, they will advance to the championship game. If they lose, they’ll play again tomorrow at 5pm for the right to play in the 3rd place game.
