Four members of the Harvard women’s basketball team have earned All-Ivy League recognition as voted on by the league’s eight head coaches. Junior Brogan Berry was unanimously selected first-team All-Ivy League, while sophomore Victoria Lippert and senior Emma Markley were named to the second team and Christine Clark earned a spot on the All-Rookie team.
This is the third straight year Berry has been honored by the league. As a rookie, Berry was the Ivy League Rookie of the Year and earned spots on the All-Rookie team and honorable mention lists and last season she was a second-team recipient.
The Beavercreek, Ohio native averaged 13.9 points, 4.2 rebounds and 4.6 assists per game. She led Harvard in scoring nine times and in assists on 20 occasions, including a career-high eight three times. On Feb. 19, Berry joined Harvard’s 1,000-point club, becoming the 15th player to accomplish the feat and only the fifth to do so as a junior. Her 2.36 assist-to-turnover ratio has ranked her among the nation’s best all season and currently places her at No. 9.
After three seasons with the Crimson, Berry ranks 14th in all-time points (1,071) and sixth in all-time assists (397).
Lippert, a sophomore guard, and Markley, a senior forward, were both instrumental in the Crimson finishing 18-10 overall and 10-4 in Ivy play, good for a share of second place. Lippert was the team’s second leading scorer at 13.5 ppg, while Markley led the squad with 5.9 rpg and chipped in 12.7 ppg. This is the second consecutive second team honor for Lippert, while Markley earned second-team honors as a sophomore and first team honors as a junior.
Clark was fourth on the team and seventh in the Ivy League in scoring with 12.1 ppg. She was the league’s best free throw shooter (81.9 percent) and third-best shooter from the field (50.6 percent).
