Senior earns her first league honor of the season after outstanding senior weekend.

PRINCETON, N.J. – Harvard women's basketball senior Temi Fagbenle has been named the Ivy League Co-Player of the Week, the conference announced Monday. Fagbenle finished her career on a high note, averaging 15.5 points and 14.0 rebounds in a 2-0 weekend for the Crimson.

Fagbenle added five steals to her stat line, while shooting 53.6 percent from the floor. The senior recorded her 12th and 13th double-doubles at Yale and Brown, the most for a Crimson student-athlete since Hana Peljto in 2003-04 (15). She finishes her career with 1,152 points (good for 15th all-time) and 792 rebounds (good for sixth).   

This marks the sixth conference player of the week honor for Fagbenle and first this season. In 2012-13, Fagbenle tied the record for most Ivy League Rookie of the Week awards in a season, taking home the honor 10 times.

The London product shares the weekly honor with Blake Dietrick of Princeton.
