Ivy League Tournament Scenarios

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Senior attackman Dean Gibbons of the Harvard men’s lacrosse team has been named the Ivy League Player of the Week after leading the Crimson to a 9-8 victory at Princeton Saturday. Gibbons was also honored by the Ivy League as Co-Player of the Week March 14.

Gibbons, a native of Garden City, N.Y., amassed six points in the win, as Harvard defeated the Tigers for the second straight season and the first time in Princeton, N.J., since 1987. With the victory, Harvard improved to 8-5 overall and 2-3 in the Ivy League and will clinch a spot in the Ivy tournament with a victory against Yale April 30.
 
Gibbons, who scored three goals and handed out three assists against Princeton, got Harvard on the scoreboard with first tally in the opening quarter, cutting the Crimson’s deficit to 3-1. He scored his second goal in the second frame to tie the game, 3-3, and assisted on Matt Hull’s tally with just 1.4 seconds left in the half, which put the Crimson up, 6-3. In the third quarter, Gibbons assisted on goals by Jack Doyle and Kevin Vaughan and capped the scoring by netting the game-winning tally with 7:47 left in the fourth quarter, giving him a hat trick.
 
Gibbons , who was also honored as COOP Athlete of the Week, leads Harvard with 49 points this spring (25-24-49) and ranks second in the Ancient Eight with 3.77 points per contest.
