#10-Spartans Take On #1-UCLA

Back in the top-10 after a one-week absence, San Jose State University takes its five-match winning streak to #1-ranked UCLA for a Mountain Pacific Sports Federation (MPSF) women's water polo match.

             The conference contest is Saturday, March 10, at the Spieker Aquatics Center on the UCLA campus.

            For the Spartans (12-7, 0-2 MPSF), it will be the third time this season facing the number-one team in the nation. Last month, San Jose State lost to Stanford twice, once in the Stanford Invitational and once in MPSF action when the Cardinal was top-ranked.

            #10-ranked San Jose State is coming off of four wins last weekend at the Harvard Invitational. The Spartans scored 53 goals for the weekend and had at least seven different scorers in each match. San Jose State was ranked 12th nationally prior to the Harvard Invitational.

            UCLA (13-1, 2-0 MPSF) is coming off a 6-5 conference win over USC on March 3. The Bruins have yet to give up more than eight goals in a match this season. In its last five contests, UCLA yielded an average of 4.6 goals per match.
