POLO SHOWDOWN . . . The No. 3-ranked Stanford women's water polo team will have a shot at revenge when the Cardinal plays host to defending NCAA champion and top-ranked USC on Friday at 5 p.m. The Trojans are expected to arrive at Stanford with a 27-game win streak and a 20-0 record this season after facing Hartwick on Thursday and San Jose State on Saturday. Sunday's showdown will be the first meeting between USC and Stanford since the two teams set an NCAA record for the longest NCAA Championship game in history last season, playing through three sudden-death periods before USC punched in the winner to claim the crown. Stanford brings a 15-1 record into the match, which will be the Cardinal's Mountain Pacific Sports Federation opener. Stanford's lone loss was to UCLA, 9-6, in the semifinals of the UCI Invitational on Feb. 23. Since then, the Cardinal has won six straight. Sunday's match also is the first of three times that Stanford will appear on the Pac-12 Networks. USC will host both the MPSF Championships and NCAA Championships this season.
