The Air Force Falcons men's water polo had a very successful regular season, they finished ranked No. 13 in the nation, have a 16-10 record and are the No. 3 seed at the 2012 WWPA championships. The top seed is UC Davis with the No. 2 seed belonging to Loyola Marymount.
Air Force will be taking on No. 6 seeded Claremont, a team that the Falcons played just once this year way back on Sept. 9 with the Falcons winning 8-7. The teams will play Friday afternoon at 3:15 p.m. MT.
Whittier College says that they will be broadcasting all tournament games on their website, it does not specify a charge, so my assumption is that they are free. Definitely, check back often to see if there is a cost associated with the video feed.
The winner of this tournament earns a berth to the NCAA Tournament which takes place on Dec. 1 and 2 at the campus of USC.
