The Crimson place pair on the first team for third-straight year.

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Senior captain Christine Clark and junior forward Temi Fagbenle of the Harvard women's basketball team earned first team All-Ivy League honors, the conference announced Thursday afternoon.

This marks the third-straight year and 11th time overall that the Crimson has placed two players on the Ancient Eight's first team.

Leading the Ivy League in scoring, Clark posted 16.8 points per game, adding 4.8 rebounds and 2.0 assists. During league action, Clark matched her scoring output, but increased her boards to 5.4 per game. Clark was a unanimous selection.  

For her career, the senior from Tucson, Ariz., moved up to fourth all-time in scoring at Harvard with 1,664 points. Clark was honored by the league in all four seasons and earned first team honors in each of the last three years. As a freshman, Clark earned a place on the all-rookie team.

After receiving Rookie of the Year and second team accolades a season ago, Fagbenle earned a spot on the first team after averaging 12.9 points and an Ivy League-best 9.4 rebounds per game. The forward from London sat ninth overall in the league in scoring and second in both blocked shots (1.4) and field goal percentage (53.7).

The duo has helped the Crimson to its 11th 20-win season under head coach Kathy Delaney-Smith.  

Since 1978, when the conference first established the awards, Harvard has earned 96 All-Ivy honors including 38 first team, 31 second team and 17 honorable mention selections.
