Freshman Victoria Lippert was named Ivy League Rookie of the Week by the conference office on Monday for her efforts in Harvard’s 90-85 double overtime win over Northeastern on Wednesday, Dec. 9.

Lippert recorded her first collegiate double-double in Harvard’s only game last week. She scored 21 points and pulled down 10 rebounds. Lippert scored 19 points after the halftime break, including 11 in the extra frames. Her jumper with 28 seconds left in regulation forced overtime, while another basket with three seconds on the clock in the first overtime session again tied the score and set up another five minutes of basketball. Lippert handed out a career-high three assists, blocked a shot and collected a steal in the win as well. She is third on the team in scoring with 13.6 points per game.

This is Lippert's first Ivy League honor. She was named to the honor roll on Nov. 16.

Sophomore Brogan Berry, who led the Crimson with 31 points and eight assists, earned a spot on the Ivy League honor roll. Berry was named Harvard’s COOP Athlete of the Week for her career-high in points against the Huskies.

Harvard is currently on break for final exams and will return to the court, Tuesday, Dec. 29 at Marist. Game time is slated for 7:30 p.m.
