CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Rising seniors AnnMarie Healy and Kit Metoyer were named captains for the 2015-16 season last night, as the Harvard women's basketball team held its annual year-end banquet at the Stockyard.

Healy, who also earned the Most Improved Player Award, upped her averages from 4.1 points and 3.3 rebounds a season ago to 13.4 points and 6.4 rebounds as a junior. The Edina, Minnesota native started 25 of 27 games and scored in double-figures 19 times, including a career-high 24 points in a win over Yale.

Metoyer, a Houston product, started eight of 28 games played, posting 5.0 points, 2.3 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game. She tallied a season-high 15 points at Cornell and recorded seven-plus points 10 times.  

Graduating senior captain Kaitlyn Dinkins earned The Robin L. Mitchell Harvard Pride Award for the third-straight year, becoming the first Crimson student-athlete to do so. The award is given annually to the player who displays exceptional sportsmanship, enthusiasm, and dedication to the team, while exemplifying what it means to wear the Harvard jersey by always putting the team first and by contributing to the Harvard community both on and off the court.

Senior forward Temi Fagbenle, a second team All-Ivy League honoree, was named the team's Most Valuable Player and given the Best Defender Award. A London product, Fagbenle led the Ivy League and ranked 37th in the nation with 10.4 rebounds per game, adding 14.4 points, 2.0 assists and 1.0 blocks. She totaled 13 double-doubles to push her career total to 31 and became the 19th player in Crimson history to eclipse the 1,000-point mark for her career.
