Lippert Nabs Second Ivy League Player of the Week Honor
Lippert boasts 13 career 20-point performances including two this past week (Gil Talbot).
CAMRBIDGE, Mass. - Senior Victoria Lippert was named the Ivy League Player of the Week on Monday for the second time this season after averaging 21.0 ppg and 5.5 rpg in a 2-0 week for the Crimson.
Lippert tallied 21 points to lead Harvard past New Hampshire on Wednesday then turned in 21 points at Hofstra on Saturday. 17 of Lippert’s points against New Hampshire came in the second half, including a seven-minute stretch to open the frame in which she scored 13 of the Crimson’s 21 points. The San Diego, Calif., native scored seven of Harvard’s 11 points in overtime against the Pride, and gave the Crimson the lead for good on a pair of free throws with just 0:38 remaining.
Lippert shot 58.3 percent (14-24) from the floor for the week, 50.0 percent (6-12) from three and was a perfect 8-of-8 from the line. She continued her ascent of Harvard’s all-time scoring list and now ranks 12th in program history with 1,211 points, and also moved into ninth-place with 455 field goals made.
This marks Lippert’s second player of the week award of the season and her seventh career weekly honor from the conference. She shares the recognition with Cornell’s Allyson DiMagno who averaged 18.5 ppg and 11.5 rpg in a pair of victories for the Big Red.
Harvard has now picked up one Ivy League award in each of the season’s first four weeks as sophomore Temi Fagbenle was co-Rookie of the Week on Nov. 12 and junior Christine Clark was Player of the Week on Nov. 26.
