Tune In To ESPNU Today For Live Santa Clara Water Polo

Be sure to tune in to ESPNU today at 3 p.m. to watch the No. 13 Santa Clara men's water polo team take on No. 18 Princeton in New Jersey at the Princeton Invitational.

Last year, the teams played a thrilling match that ended with the Broncos upsetting the higher-ranked Tigers.  In the fourth quarter of that game, it was tied 6-6 with 20 seconds to go.  Head Coach Keith Wilbur called time-out and arranged a play for the ball to end up in junior Nick Poggetti's hands.  The play was successful, as Poggetti got the ball right in front of the cage, sticking it in for the win with just 6.7 seconds left on the clock.  Goalie Michael Wishart made 13 saves in that match, including blocking two penalty shots.

ESPNU can be found on channel on channel 28 on the Santa Clara campus TV network, channel 208 on DirecTV, or channel 141 on DishNetwork.  For cable, check your local listings.

The team will be chronicling their trip with short videos.  The first installment (below) includes a special guest star.
