What's Bruin: Men's Water Polo Extends Win Streak To 48 Games

Also, Women's Volleyball and Men's Soccer lose tough games and videos of UCLA Olympians and K-Love!


Let's take another quick spin around the world of UCLA Athletics and find out What's Bruin on this Monday afternoon....

Men's Water Polo

The streak lives on as the No. 1 UCLA Men's Water Polo team won its 48th straight game by beating No. 3 UC Berkeley, 10-7 in the championship game of the Mountain Pacific Invitational yesterday in Berkeley. Max Irving had a hat trick while Garrett Danner had 14 saves as the Bruins won the tournament.

The team will be looking to tie the school record for consecutive victories when they are back in the pool for a doubleheader on Saturday in Westwood.

Women's Volleyball

Taylor Formico moved into seventh place on the all-time UCLA digs list passing Jenny Evans, but UCLA lost to Washington State in five sets on Friday night at Pauley Pavilion. Claire Felix led the Bruins with 16 kills. Wazzu won the first two sets before the Bruins won two sets of their own to force a fifth and deciding set. UCLA held off the Cougars through three match points in the fifth set before Washington State finally claimed the victory.

Men's Soccer

On Friday night in San Luis Obispo, Cal Poly's Justin Dhillon got a shot past Bruin goalkeeper Juan Cervantes at the 9 minute mark as the UCLA Men's Soccer team was upset by the Mustangs, 1-0.

UCLA Olympians

If you were at Saturday night's Stanford game, you know that UCLA honored its Olympians. If you weren't at the game....well, you know how I feel about that.

The Athletic Department posted a few video interviews. First, there is one with 1960 decathalon gold medalist and UCLA treasure Rafer Johnson.

Then, there's one with a more recent Olympian 2016 Women's Water Polo gold medalist Maddie Musselman, who just started classes at UCLA last week.

Men's Basketball

Finally, today, we have an interview with former Bruin Kevin Love on the sideline of Saturday's game. Love was honored after the first quarter for his $1 million contribution to the Mo Ostin Basketball Center.

Go Bruins!!!
