Clark Picks Up Third Ivy League Player of the Week Honor
Clark has moved into 10th place on the Ivy League’s career player of the week list (OAC).
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Christine Clark has been named the Ivy League Player of the Week for the second time in as many weeks and the third time this year, conference officials announced Monday.
Clark now boasts six career player of the week honors, tying her with former Crimson Tammy Butler ’95 and Emma Markley ’11 for 10th place on the Ivy League’s all-time player of the week list. Harvard great Allison Feaster ’98 owns the record for career honors, having been named player of the week 21 times in her illustrious career.
Clark scored a game-high 22 points on Saturday to lead Harvard to an 88-66 win over Dartmouth in the team’s Ancient Eight opener. Seven of her points came during a 12-0 run by the Crimson in the second half which turned an 11-point lead into a 23-point margin. Clark shot 8-of-11 from the floor and was 5-of-5 from the line while also pulling down a team-best seven rebounds and dishing out two assists.
Clark has gone for more than 20 points four times this season including each of the team’s last two games. She currently leads the conference in scoring (16.9 ppg), is fifth in assists (3.1 apg) and owns the ninth best shooting percentage (44.2%).
Harvard has now won 12 of the 20 weekly awards handed out by the Ivy League office this season and has earned at least one award each week it has competed. The Crimson’s 12 awards are the most for a team in one season since Princeton had 15 in 2009-10 and are the most for a Harvard squad since taking home 13 in 2008-09.
Harvard is back in action Jan. 26 when it travels to Dartmouth for a 7 p.m. rematch between the teams.
