Fagbenle Pulls Down Sixth Ivy League Rookie of the Week Honor

The Crimson has earned a program record 13 weekly awards from the Ivy League (OAC).

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Temi Fagbenle has once again been named the Ivy League Rookie of the Week, earning her sixth award of the season after an eight-point, 10-rebound performance at Dartmouth on Saturday.

Fagbenle now finds herself tied for the ninth most rookie of the week honors in one season, joining the likes of former Crimson Brogan Berry ’12 and Reka Cserny ’05. Allison Feaster ’98 set the program record for most awards in a season at nine in 1994-95 when she averaged 17.0 ppg and 11.2 rpg.

Harvard has combined to win 13 of the 24 weekly awards given out by the Ivy League this season, matching the program record and ranking second in conference history. Fagbenle has a total of eight awards to her name, having twice been named player of the week along with her six rookie of the week honors, while Christine Clark and Victoria Lippert have garnered player of the week honors three times and two time, respectively. The Crimson has earned at least one weekly award from the conference office each week it has played a game.

Fagbenle currently ranks among the Ivy League leaders in several statistical categories including scoring (11.3 ppg, 12th), rebounding (7.0 rpg, 4th), and blocked shots (1.3, 4th). She also boasts the second best field-goal percentage in the conference at 51.1 percent. The sophomore has registered three double-doubles on the year and has pulled down 10-plus rebounds five times.
