Senior Cullen Hennessy of the UCLA men's water polo team recaps the Bruins' championship finish at the MPSF Tournament and looks forward to this weekend's NCAA Tournament in the latest edition of his weekly video blog, "Poolside With Cullen Hennessy."

Last weekend, UCLA captured the MPSF Tournament title with three consecutive overtime victories in as many days at the Bruins' home facility, Spieker Aquatics Center. Hennessy scored the game-winning goal with 10 seconds remaining in overtime against Pepperdine on Friday in a first-round meeting, lead the Bruins past the Waves, 5-4.

UCLA edged California, 7-6, in overtime the follow afternoon. Paul Reynolds scored the game-winner for the Bruins in overtime during that contest. The Bruins advanced to a title game showdown against crosstown rival USC on Sunday afternoon.

The Bruins emerged victories against the Trojans, 10-9, as Cristiano Mirarchi scored the game-winning goal just 54 seconds into sudden-victory overtime for UCLA. In the championship game, UCLA received one goal from each of 10 players, marking the first time in which UCLA won a game without any multiple goal scorers since Oct. 22, 2005.

Hennessy and the Bruins (23-4) open the NCAA Tournament as the No. 2 seed, facing No. 3-seed UC San Diego (17-9) on Saturday at 3 p.m. This year's tournament is being hosted by California at Spieker Aquatics Complex (Berkeley, Calif.). The winner of Saturday's semifinal between UCLA and UC San Diego will face either No. 1-seed USC (22-3) or No. 4-seed Princeton (21-9) on Sunday at 3 p.m. in the championship game.
