Harvard 3, Providence 0

Harvard survived a shaky start against a hard-charging Providence squad that forced Crimson goalie Merrick Madsen to make seven saves in the first four minutes en route to a career-high 41 saves in a 3-0 first round victory.

That and an offsides call that negated a Friars goal kept it scoreless until Harvard scored early in the second and again that period to pull away for the Crimson’s first NCAA win since 1994. Tyler Moy scored twice, including the eventual game-winner.

Jacob Onyechi seemed to be the breakout performer on Tuesday as Air Force hosted Pro Day, as he ran an unofficial 4.41 40-meter dash and recorded a 40-inch vertical leap.

But if he is able to extend his career, what position will he play?

He’s not sure.

“Being here and everything I was able to do here I think it’s shown that I’m willing to do just about anything,” Onyechi said. “I played safety in high school. I obviously played outside linebacker here. I’ve been on special teams and all of that. Whatever team might be interested in me, I’d be willing to do anything.”

The 6-foot-2, 210-pound defender worked out with the defensive backs during Pro Day. He

Imagine taking a college entrance exam where results were known to universities, but not you. Then you are forced to wait around to see if your score was good enough to warrant a scholarship offer.

That’s pretty much how Pro Day at the Air Force Academy worked on Tuesday. The event was administered entirely by NFL scouts, with the academy simply serving as the host.

The way the scouts do it, times are kept private. Players run the 40-meter dash and run through agility drills, but don’t know how they perform. They also take the Wunderlic exam – a sort of catch-all intelligence test – and run position drills that resemble little in the way of actual football plays.

Sunday - Two underrated new programs that both involve time travel. 
“Making History” (7:30 p.m., Fox) - Deborah suspects that Dan may not be the clever inventor he claimed to be back in 1776, which leads to questions about their budding relationship. Meanwhile, Chris’ mentor puts him under intense scrutiny as he works to achieve tenure at the university. 

“Time After Time” (8 p.m., ABC) - Dr. John Stevenson (Jack the Ripper) has met his match in a stunning and equally cunning doctor named Brooke. Meanwhile H.G. and Jane travel back to the 1980s where they make a shocking discovery that could change Vanessa’s life. I’m guessing its how cool sweaters look when tied

ROCHESTER, N.Y. - Air Force hockey is headed to the NCAA Tournament for the first time in five years after a heart-pounding 2-1 win over Robert Morris on Saturday night.

Sophomore goalie Shane Starrett made 24 saves as the Falcons staved off a furious effort by the Colonials, including a full 2 minutes, 30 seconds at the end of the third period with RMU playing with the extra attacker.

"I didn't realize the time was running out until they announced a minute was left, I was so dialed in," said Starrett, who was named MVP of the Atlantic Hockey Conference tournament in Rochester, N.Y.

The winner of the late semifinal will face No. 4 seed Robert Morris, which ended top-seeded Canisius’ 17-game win streak with a 6-2 upset in the opener. AHC leading scorer Brady Ferguson recorded a hat trick to propel the Colonials.
