PRINCETON, N.J. – Earning the Crimson's first weekly honor of the season, first-year guard Noah Kirkwood has been named the Ivy League Rookie of the Week for Nov. 19-25.
The Ottawa, Ontario native averaged 12.0 points per game across two games against West Coast Conference competition in San Francisco and Saint Mary's, while also posting 5.5 rebounds per game. Kirkwood helped Harvard become just the second non-conference team in the past three-plus seasons to win at McKeon Pavilion, with the Saint Mary's win serving as the top victory for an Ivy program this season, according to KenPom ratings.
Kirkwood ranks fourth on the Crimson in scoring and second in rebounding through six games. Harvard continues its non-conference slate against Holy Cross Wednesday and Siena Saturday.
