In the Cage: Episode IX


For what could be the final rendition of In the Cage, the men’s water polo writers mustered together a live studio audience. Some laughed, some cried, but all were intent on hearing the forecast for the biggest weekend of all – the NCAA championships.

UCLA’s last national championship came from this weekend last year, and the men’s water polo team wants number 114 to come from this one as well. They’re playing No. 3 California today for the fourth time this year.

What can we expect to see each team do differently, if anything? Can UCLA win as a No. 2 seed and not as a No. 1 seed? Will there be any comparison to the 2015-2016 Golden State Warriors? What will the result mean for the senior class?

Episode IX has it all.
