Steve Virgen When UC Irvine senior Jeff Powers speaks of his water polo teammates, it's as if he's talking about his younger brothers. He'll defend them if needed and brag about them at any chance. "What I like about this team," said Powers, the Anteaters' 6-6, 220-pound senior two-meter man. "Is that they're all anxious to learn. I like that a lot. They're all passionate about the game and they're just a lot of fun to be with." Powers is one of two seniors on the UCI men's water polo team, which also features senior standout goalie Doug Finfrock, as well as six sophomores, including 6-foot-9 Dreason Barry.

Powers, 28, a three-time first-team All-American at UCI from 2000 to 2002 and the Anteaters’ leading scorer in 1999 and 2000, was back at his alma mater to bask in his newfound and, some might say, surprising Olympic glory.
