Princeton, N.J. - The No. 16 Santa Clara men's water polo team defeated MIT 16-2 this evening in their season opener at the Princeton Invitational in New Jersey.
"It was great to get a good start, we haven't always done that to begin a season," said head coach Keith Wilbur. "Our guys played well, but its the first game of the season and there is always room for improvement."
Santa Clara takes on Fordham tomorrow afternoon and No. 11 Princeton when tournament action resumes tomorrow.
The Princeton match will be stremed live on GoPrincetonTigers.tv and will also be televised on New Jersey's Verizon Cable Fios1 channel.
