Berry Named Ivy League Player of the Week, Again

Berry has earned 11 career Ivy League weekly awards, including five player of the week and six rookie of the week honors (Ron Feltman).

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Women’s basketball’s Brogan Berry joined some exclusive company last week and was rewarded Monday by being named the Ivy League Player of the Week.

Berry moved into the Ivy League’s all-time top 10 for career assists during Harvard’s 68-47 win at UMass on Tuesday, and currently ranks ninth in league annals with 457 helpers. The senior co-captain also entered Harvard’s all-time top 10 for career points as the Crimson defeated TCU, 56-44, and is 10th on that list with 1,236 points.

Berry averaged 14.5 ppg and 5.5 apg for the week, shooting 47.1 percent from the floor and 57.1 percent from three. She notched the first double-double of her career with 12 points and a career-best 10 assists at UMass, and scored a game-high 17 points at TCU.

This is the 11th Ivy League weekly award of Berry’s career and her fifth player of the week honor, placing her one shy of the conference’s top 10 for career player of the week awards. Harvard has nabbed three Ivy League Player of the Week honors this season, with Berry also garnering the accolade on Dec. 12 and Christine Clark picking up the first of her career Nov. 28.

Berry will be a guest on this week’s edition of Inside Ivy League Basketball which will air Wednesday, Jan. 11 at 7 p.m. Inside Ivy League Basketball, a 12-episode online radio show dedicated to talking basketball in the Ancient Eight, launched Thursday, Nov. 10 on BlogTalkRadio.com.
