Clark Picks Up Third Ivy League Player of the Week Honor

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.
