The Cal men's water polo team pushed things to the limit this past weekend, recording a narrow 9-8 upset over then-No. 1 USC and barely escaping Pacific, 7-6.

Fortunately for the Bears, Eldad Hazor doesn't mind coming up big when a game gets down to the wire. Hazor notched the game-winner against the Trojans in the first overtime period on Sunday. The senior driver, who is recognized as one of the top-outside shooters in the nation, continued to impress onlookers after he successfully converted a four-meter penalty shot to give Cal the win.

Hazor notched two other goals against USC, including one in the second and third periods. Putting up big numbers is anything but foreign to Hazor. Earlier in the season, the Bears relied on Hazor's three-goal performance to outlast then-No. 2 Stanford and avenge a dismal showing at the Southern California Tournament.

Hazor's prolific shooting has continued to develop since his freshmen season in 1997. After recording 17 points in his first year, Hazor went on to notch 27 points as a sophomore and was second on the team last season with a total of 30 points.
