NEW YORK -- Former Harvard standout and current New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin '10 was named the ABC News World News Tonight Person of the Week after jumping into the national spotlight with his stellar play.

Lin, who became the first player in NBA history to post at least 20 points and seven assists in his first four starts, tallied a career-high 38 points against the Los Angeles Lakers Friday. He added a double-double (23 points, 10 assists) in a win at the Washington Wizards Feb. 8, becoming the first former Ivy League player to record a double-double since Yale's Chris Dudley earned one for the Knicks in 1999.

Lin is averaging 11.9 points per game and 4.1 assists per contest in 14 games with the New York Knicks this season.
