UCLA is again broadcasting for free over its internet web site (UCLABruins.com) the NCAA Women's Water Polo Tournament matches involving the Bruins on May 9-11. UCLA is also planning to broadcast both NCAA semi-final matches on Saturday, May 10.
All broadcasts can be reached at www.uclabruins.com either through the multi-media/audio broadcasts section or the Calendar tab on the front page.
On Friday, May 9 at 5 pm, UCLA will broadcasting live the 5 pm quarterfinal match between the top-seeded Bruins and eighth-seeded Pomona-Pitzer. Should UCLA win, the match on Saturday, May 10 between UCLA and either San Diego State or UC Davis will be broadcast live at 4 pm. The second semi-final, which is expected to be between #2 seed Stanford and #3 seed USC, will also be broadcast live at 5:45 pm. Should UCLA reach the championship match, it will be broadcast live at 6 pm on Sunday, May 11.
This is the seventh time in the eight-year history of the NCAA Women's Water Polo Championships that UCLA has done live audio broadcasts. Dave Marcus, the host of UCLA `BruinTalk' and the women's basketball play-by-play voice, will call the action, along with Michael Sondheimer. Sondheimer has done the previous six broadcasts.
All broadcasts will be commercial-free.
