LOS ANGELES - UCLA's Spieker Aquatics Center will serve as the host venue for the USA Men's Water Polo National Team's exhibition match against Hungary on Thursday, May 31. Game time is 7 p.m.
The upcoming game at Spieker Aquatics Center will present a rematch of the 2008 Olympic Games gold medal match. In that contest, Hungary defeated the United States, 14-10, in Beijing, China.
Current UCLA head coach Adam Wright and former UCLA goalkeeper Chay Lapin are both on the USA Men's National Team roster. Wright played for the Bruins from 1997-2000, and Lapin starred in the cage for UCLA from 2006-2009. Wright has served as the UCLA men's water polo head coach the last three seasons and competed for Team USA at the 2004 and 2008 Olympics.
