CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Chris Lewis of the Harvard men's basketball team has been honored as the Ivy League Co-Rookie of the Week, the conference office announced Monday. 

The freshman paced the Crimson in both games last week, posting 16 points at Vermont and 14 in the win at Dartmouth. For the week, Lewis averaged 15.0 points per game on 67.5 percent shooting. Pulling down 5.0 rebounds, the Alpharetta, Georgia product also blocked 1.5 shots per game.  

This is the first weekly award for Lewis, who joins classmates Seth Towns and Bryce Aiken as Ancient Eight weekly award winners this year. 

Harvard will be back in action Tuesday, Jan. 10 against McGill at Lavietes Pavilion.
