Women's college hockey: Crimson close book on Eagles

MINNEAPOLIS — After a lopsided early-season loss to Boston College, Harvard was about as far away from a NCAA championship as you could get.

Early loss spurred Crimson

It’s not often that losing a hockey game by eight goals is considered a positive, but according to Harvard women’s hockey coach Katey Stone, a 10-2 loss to Boston CollegeC in November was a catalyst to her team’s trip to the Frozen Four.“I think early on in the season sometimes you take your licks and it pays off in the end,” Stone said. “That (defeat) was probably one of the best things to happen to us. It made us realize that we had to work a lot harder than we had been.”

E. Washington confident it can upset Georgetown in tourney

PORTLAND, Ore. — Say this for Eastern Washington coach Jim Hayford: he's confident about his Eagles heading into the NCAA Tournament against Georgetown.So confident, in fact, that Hayford predicted on a national radio show Wednesday that his team would win. He told listeners of The Jim Rome Show on CBS Sports Radio they could advance the Eagles in their brackets and ended the interview by telling the host: "We're gonna win. Talk again, Jim."Of course, the idea isn't that farfetched.

BC lineman impresses scouts at pro day

Andy Gallik did not run the 40-yard dash at the Boston College pro day yesterday. After just one drill, it was evident why he didn’t have to.The 6-foot-3, 304-pound center showed off an explosive quickness on a snap and pull drill, staying low to the ground and barreling around cones to pick up a towel.The drill demonstrated part of why the Illinois native is projected to go somewhere between the third and fifth rounds in the NFL draft this year. His overall size or measurables may not pop out, but he plays fast, strong and through the whistle.
