PRINCETON, N.J. – After his offensive explosion against Holy Cross, senior guard Bryce Aiken of the Harvard men's basketball team has been named the Ivy League Player of the Week. The weekly honor is the fifth of Aiken's career, including three Player of the Week awards.
Aiken scored 32 points in Harvard's 82-74 win over Holy Cross, including five 3-pointers and nine free throws. He became 35th player in program history to reach 1,000 career points, doing so in his sixth-career 30-point outing. The Randolph, New Jersey native guided Harvard to its third-largest comeback (16 points) in the Tommy Amaker era against the Crusaders.
The Crimson is 4-2 on the season, and continues its non-conference action Nov. 28-Dec. 1 at the Orlando Invitational. Harvard opens with Texas A&M on Thanksgiving at 1 p.m. on ESPN2.
