CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Freshman Seth Towns of the Harvard men's basketball team has been named the Ivy League Rookie of the Week, the conference announced Monday.

Towns averaged 17.0 points and 8.0 rebounds, adding 2.0 assists in a 2-0 weekend for the Crimson. The Columbus, Ohio product shot 54.2 percent from the floor. Harvard has won six-straight and has already clinched at least the No. 2 seed in the inaugural Ivy League tournament.  

This marks the third weekly honor for Towns and the sixth time a rookie has earned the distinction this year.

Harvard heads to Princeton and Penn this weekend, taking on the Tigers Friday, March 3 at 5 p.m. on ESPNU. The Crimson and Quakers tip off Saturday at 7 p.m. on the Ivy League Digital Network.
