College lacrosse: Harvard Crimson are the team of the week

  Robert Shaw earned his fourth-straight win in goal with 10 saves against Duke.

No overtime needed this week for Harvard, the NCAA.com men’s lacrosse team of the week.

Harvard moved up from No. 12 to No. 7 in this week’s Inside Lacrosse Top 20 after dominating then-No. 4 Duke, 14-9, on Saturday, March 5.

Harvard played four extra periods in its first three games but ended streak with a fury of goal against the Blue Devils. Trailing 5-4 in the second quarter, the Crimson erupted for eight unanswered goals over the next 28 minutes to seal the victory. Harvard is 4-0 for the first time since 2002.

Devin Dwyer and Morgan Cheek totaled six points apiece. Dwyer scored four goals and added two assists to move his point-scoring streak to 37 games and Cheek tallied three goals and three assists.

Robert Shaw earned his fourth-straight win in goal with 10 saves. Jack Breit and Bobby Duvnjak each collected five ground balls in the defensive third, and Keegan Michel went 14-of-24 at the X.

Harvard visits Bryant Tuesday night before traveling to Penn State for a nationally-televised game on ESPNU Saturday, March 12.
