Clark Named Ivy League Co-Player of the Week

Senior captain moving up scoring list to No. 8 with 1,338 career points.

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Pacing the Crimson with 21.0 points per game this week, Harvard women's basketball senior guard Christine Clark was named the Ivy League Co-Player of the Week, the conference announced Monday.

Clark now owns eight conference weekly honors for her career, which stands good for seventh in Ancient Eight history. The Tucson, Ariz., native earned four a season ago.

Clark posted 21 points in each of Harvard's two wins, shooting a combined 15-of-32 from the floor while hitting 9-of-10 free throws. The Crimson captain added 3.0 rebounds and 1.5 assists for the week.

Brown's Sophie Bikofsky was also named co-player of the week for the week ending Nov. 18.  

Clark has scored 20-plus in three-straight games and leads Harvard with 18.3 points per game. She ranks third in the Ivy League in scoring, sixth in three point field goals made (2.0), seventh in assists (3.0) and eighth in free throw percentage (.864).

Clark and the Crimson wrap their three-game homestand Tuesday, Nov. 19 vs. Florida International. Harvard will then hit the road for five games over the next month.
