LOS ANGELES -- LMU men's water polo has a roster of 25 players, 20 of which are underclassmen. The young team has the first month of the season under their belt and LMU Sports Network sat down with freshman Cory McGee as the Lions head to their next tournament on Friday and Saturday, Oct. 4-5.

Entering the weekend, just two Lions have played more than 50 games in their career at LMU and of the 10 players have appeared in at least 10 games so far this season, seven are underclassmen. One of the newcomers in that group is freshman Cory McGee. The two-meter defender has worked his way into the starting line-up and he sat down with LMU Sports Network to talk about playing college water polo, his experiences and much more.

McGee is third on the team with 13 goals and second with 12 steals this season. Fellow underclassmen Milutin Mitrovic and Vuk Cvetkovic sit right ahead of him with 30 and 16 goals, respectively. The sophomores are ranked first and tied for 11th, respectively, within the Western Water Polo Association.

The young squad has been thrown into the fire through 11 games this season, and that was by design for Head Coach John Loughran. The Lions are wrapping up a stretch of 10 straight against the nation's top-20, including seven against the top-10.

LMU heads to the 2013 Troyer Invitational hosted by Pomona-Pitzer, Whittier and LaVerne. The tournament features 21 teams playing in 39 games at the three venues over the two days. LMU will open with host Pomona-Pitzer on Friday at 2 pm, followed by Fresno Pacific at 6 pm. They will then shift venues and face Iona at 1 pm, followed by host Whittier at 5 pm.
