Sophomore Christian Webster is Harvard's leading scorer, averaging 17.3 points per game (Mitchell Layton).

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Sophomore guard Christian Webster of the Harvard men's basketball team tallied a career-high 29 points in the Crimson's 75-69 victory at Mercer Saturday and was rewarded with Ivy League Co-Player of the Week honors. Webster shares the award with Yale's Austin Morgan.

Webster, who hails from Washington, D.C., shot 7-of-11 from the field, including 3-of-4 from long range against the Bears. He also made 12-of-15 free throws, grabbed six rebounds, including four on the offensive side of the ball, and handed out two assists in 39 minutes. 

In Harvard's 72-49 win over Holy Cross Wednesday, Webster netted 12 points, making 5-of-9 shots, while adding five rebounds and one block, as Harvard finished the week with a 2-0 record, improving to 2-1 overall on the season.  Overall, Webster averaged 20.5 points last week leads Harvard with 17.3 points per game for the year.

On Nov. 15, junior forward and co-captain Keith Wright has tabbed the Ivy League Player of the Week, as the Crimson has earned the first two Ancient Eight Player of the Week awards this season.
Webster and the Crimson will visit Bryant Wednesday, Nov. 24 at 4 p.m., before hosting Colorado at Lavietes Pavilion Sunday, Nov. 28 at 1 p.m.
