Freshman Victoria Lippert earned Rookie of the Week honors for
the second straight week and third time this season.
Lippert was a thorn in Cornell and Columbia’s sides as she posted a double-double against Cornell and a career-high 28 points in the win over Columbia. Lippert connected on her first eight shots and led the Crimson with 13 points at halftime against the Lions. She added 15 more in the second on an 11-for-13 effort from the field. Lippert was 4-for-4 from the free throw line and 2-for-2 from three-point land. Lippert had 20 points and 10 rebounds against Cornell to average 24 points, 5.5 rebounds and 2.0 steals in New York. The rookie is second on the team in scoring with 13.1 ppg.
Harvard, the winners of five straight and seven of its last eight contests, remain on the road at Brown and Yale this weekend. The Crimson is 16-7 overall and 7-2 in Ivy League play.
