Fagbenle Tabbed Ivy League Player of the Week

Junior averaged a double-double in 2-0 week for the Crimson.

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Harvard women's basketball junior forward Temi Fagbenle was named the Ivy League Player of the Week, the conference announced Monday. The London, England native averaged a double-double in a 2-0 week for the Crimson.

This marks the third conference player of the week honors for Fagbenle. Last season, Fagbenle tied the record for most Ivy League Rookie of the Week awards in a season, taking home the honor 10 times.  

Fagbenle averaged 12.5 points and 10.5 rebounds in wins over FIU and Colgate. The forward helped head coach Kathy Delaney-Smith reach her 500th career win against the Raiders, pouring in 16 points and adding a team-high eight boards. Fagbenle filled the stat sheet, also registering 3.5 assists, 2.0 steals and 3.0 blocks over the week.  

Harvard – off to its best start since the 1997-98 season – will head to Northeastern Tuesday, Nov. 26 for a 7 p.m. tip. at the Cabot Center.
