The IU water polo team’s five-game winning streak is predicated largely on defense, as the Hoosiers have allowed 4.8 goals per game in their past five matches. They look to take their strong defense into this weekend’s Aztec Invitational in San Diego.

When a team starts a season 2-7, there is normally reason to worry. The IU water polo team has begun its 2011 season with such a record, going 1-3 on each weekend of its young season.

Athletes relax, still train in offseason

·

Water polo is a sport that is not common among many Hoosiers, but despite that, the Hoosiers still have a strong program, and many of the water polo players spend their summers conditioning for the regular season.
