A few takeaways from the weekend tournament (full disclosure, just my opinion as a parent)

Indiana can be a tough out at times, if you play poorly, they can win.
UCSD looks like they are poised for a solid season, Brad has them playing well.
If ASU can play more consistent, they can be a top 4 team. They played with confidence especially after the win against UCI.
UCSB struggled, a 3-2 win against SDSU and big loss to UCI means they they need to improve. They may need more depth.
UCD looked idle, they lost in sudden death to Indiana (hence my comment above)
UCI gave up a big lead to ASU and lost by 1. That was their only hiccup. I expect them to be fine going forward.
USC was challenged hard by UCSD. That being said, SC is big, fast and strong, they're good!
UCLA is outstanding, no new info here!

As for the others who played, I only saw CSULB, CSUN & Santa Clara some but not much of the others so I can't comment on them. Fun weekend, we all got wet on Sunday though, players and fans, ha!

Abbi Hill (Freshman, UCLA) looks to be the early favorite for Player of the Year.

This season these factors seem especially strong, and this week's poll seems especially wacky. Salem, George Washington and Santa Clara showed up on the poll this week with RV but I can't see anything in their results that support top 25 performance.

Honestly, after watching many games this season at the SB, SD & UCLA tournaments, I see a few teams ranked below UCSB that that may have an issue with these rankings as well.

Fresno State played Stanford this past weekend and kept it close all the way until the end. Stanford won 8-6

Hello, I am relatively new to wpp and have some questions about NCAA water polo stats and if there is one source of the truth. I think I understand that the Fosh captures data from submitted game sheets to track conference standings, player stats, etc. At the recent Triton Invitational UCLA got a MPSF conference win credit for beating ASU but not for their finals victory over USC? I also noted that certain teams seemed to have updated the Fosh after the fact with player stats that were not captured in the game sheet. Is it up to the individual teams to register with The Fosh and submit or directly enter additional stats (if they tracked them or reviewed video afterwards) like goalie saves, assists, drawn exclusions and steals when the hosting scoresheet officials do not? Thanks in advance for any enlightenment.

Barbara Kalbus Invitational is this weekend, AKA the biggest tournament of the regular season.

SCHEDULE: https://ucirvinesports.com/sports/2020/ ... -page.aspx

Looking forward to some potentially great games this weekend. Two games that should be good tomorrow... Michigan vs. Cal & UCSD vs. UCSB.

I thought this past weekend at UCI was very interesting. I was a little shocked at some teams. Some played better than I expected and it was nice to see. Some others not so well. What is going on at Cal and UOP?

Championship game was crazy, complete domination by USC.

Congratulations to Michigan, a big win against Cal, took UCI to the wire and notched the third victory of the year against Santa Barbara.

I thought the tournament was well run by UCI but where were all the home team students/fans?

Lots of Olympic year redshirts at both...UOP is redshirting their entire starting lineup including goalie.

I agree, Michigan appears better then their record so far. It wasn't surprising to USC win, they have a very deep team and after losing to UCLA at the Triton invitational, they had extra motivation. I will say, SC defends very well. I thought UCI was impressive (even though it was close against MI) they competed as well as any team versus USC and won big versus AZ but again had extra motivation after the 1 goal loss in SD. The top 5 rankings should be obvious but the next 10 should be interesting, I expect lots of movement.
