Clark has earned three of Harvard’s Ivy League leading five player of the week honors this season (Gil Talbot).
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Sophomore Christine Clark was named the Ivy League Player of the Week for the third time this season on Monday after posting back-to-back 20-point performances.
Clark registered her third double-double of the year, and second in as many games, on Friday with 20 points and 10 rebounds at Brown. She backed that performance up with a 23-point, seven-rebound effort on Saturday as the Crimson cruised to a 71-51 win at Yale, marking the team’s largest margin of victory in New Haven since 1997. Clark connected on 17-of-25 attempts over the weekend, including a 10-of-12 showing against the Bulldogs, as she averaged 21.5 ppg and 8.5 rpg.
Clark has been named the conference’s player of the week three times this season, one shy of earning a place among the Ivy League’s top 10. She is averaging 15.9 ppg, 5.9 rpg and 1.7 spg, all career-highs, after picking up three Ivy League Rookie of the Week honors last season and being named to the Ivy League All-Rookie team. Harvard has earned a total of five player of the week awards this season, most in the conference, with senior Brogan Berry also having earned the distinction twice.
