Clark Receives Seventh Career Ivy League Honor

Clark turned in back-to-back 20-point performances against Holy Cross and Michigan (Gil Talbot).

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Christine Clark was named the Ivy League Player of the Week on Monday, marking her seventh career weekly honor from the conference and the Crimson’s third in as many weeks.

Clark averaged 21.3 ppg, 6.3 rpg and 2.7 apg while leading the Crimson to a 2-1 campaign. She opened with a dominate performance at Holy Cross on Tuesday, scoring a season-best 25 points on 9-of-17 shooting, 3-of-4 from three, with six rebounds, three assists and three steals. Clark then turned in a 23-point, eight-rebound effort at Michigan on Friday and followed it up by registering 16 points, five rebounds, four assists and four steals at Eastern Michigan.

Clark has led Harvard in scoring in all six games to open the season, becoming the first Crimson to do so since Hannah Peltjo '04 in 2002-03. The junior currently ranks first in the Ancient Eight with 19.0 ppg, is seventh with 2.8 apg and leads the NCAA in free-throw percentage (1.000).

This marks Clark’s seventh career weekly award from the Ivy League and her fourth career player of the week honor. Harvard has now picked up an Ivy League award in each of the season’s first three weeks following Temi Fagbenle’s recognition as rookie of the week Nov. 12 and Victoria Lippert being tabbed player of the week Nov. 19.

Harvard returns to action Wednesday, Nov. 28 as it hosts New Hampshire at 7 p.m. at Lavietes Pavilion.
