AZUSA, Calif.-- On Tuesday evening Azusa pacific hosts its only two home matches of the season in a triple-header that features two of the nation’s top-teams. The Cougars take on No. 4 (Collegiate Water Polo Association) Arizona State at 4:15 before playing No. 18 (CWPA) Princeton (N.J.) at 7:15 in the nightcap, while The Tigers and Sun Devils open the day with the first sprint set for 3:00 p.m. at Mt. SAC’s Marie T. Mills Aquatic Facility.

The Cougars (7-15) are coming off a 17-5 win over Virginia Military Institute at last weekend’s Lancer Invitational, breaking a five match losing streak for Azusa Pacific. Megan Minekime scored a season-high six goals in the win, while junior keeper Brooke Sovick tallied 13 saves against the Keydet offense.

Arizona State has won five of its last six matches, including victories against a trio of ranked opponents. The Sun Devils defeated No. 5 California, No. 8 San Diego State, and No. 13 Michigan in that stretch and registered its only loss to the top-ranked Bruins of UCLA.

Princeton also comes in with a 5-1 clip over its last six. The Tigers went 3-1 at last weekend’s Aztec Invitational, edging out No. 12 Cal State Northridge 4-3 in the opener before defeating No. 19 UC San Diego in overtime with a 7-6 win. In the finale Princeton fell to No.8 San Diego State 9-7.
