Tomorrow afternoon, men’s water polo returns to the NCAA tournament for their 32nd appearance and the first since 2014. The Cardinal (20-2, MPSF 2-1) enter the scene ranked as the best team in the nation after triumphing over No. 2 UCLA and No. 4 Cal in the MPSF end-of-season tournament two weeks ago. This championship has an extra layer of significance as Stanford will play host for the first time in five years.
It seems that every day is game day on the Farm and this weekend is no exception. It’s an exciting and important weekend for Stanford sports, as the Farm will host key Pac-12 matchups on the field, on the court and in the pool. The Cardinal has five teams ranked in the top 25 in the nation, looking to help Stanford earn its 20th consecutive Director’s Cup for the 2013-14 season.
