2012 MPSF Tournament: Day 2 schedule

Bob Donnan-US PRESSWIRE

The top four seeds will be facing off in the MPSF semifinals.

The top four teams in the MPSF advanced to the semifinal round, and are one step closer to earning the leagues automatic bid to the NCAA tournament. The two semifinal games will be between top seed Stanford going up against No. 4 Stanford, and then No. 2 seeded UCLA taking on third-seeded Cal.

Saturday, November 24
10:00 a.m. PT Game 5 #8 UC Santa Barbara vs. #5 Long Beach State
11:30 a.m. PT Game 6 #7 Pacific vs. #6 Pepperdine
1:30 p.m. PT Game 7 (Semifinal) #1 USC vs. #4 Stanford
3:00 p.m. PT Game 8 (Semifinal) #2 UCLA vs. #3 California

The first semifinal game is USC vs. Stanford and the two have faced each other twice it was USC who came out on top. USC won a 10-9 overtime match and most recently won 9-6, both of those wins came on the campus at Stanford. This time around the games will be at USC. The Trojans are undefeated this year, and more than likely should be able to continue their winning streak on Saturday.

The other semifinal game is UCLA vs. Cal, and these two teams have faced each other two times as well. UCLA won both games, but they were extremely close each time as they won in overtime. With Cal we are not sure what to get grom a week to week basis, ever since they had five players suspended they have been an up and down team. However, Cal has won their past six games, and are possibly playing their best water polo to date. Making this semifinal match interesting.

UCLA nearly has at least the NCAA at-large spot locked up, but if they lose then there could be the possibility of them not getting into the NCAA tournament. Who knows what could happen to USC, but they are in regardless, so UCLA needs to make it to the final game to secure a spot at the NCAA tournament.
