Clark Named Ivy League Player of the Week

Clark picks up the first player of the week award of her career after leading Harvard in scoring in back-to-back games (Gil Talbot).

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Sophomore Christine Clark has been named the Ivy League Co-Player of the Week after averaging 17.5 ppg and 7.0 rpg in a 1-1 week for the Crimson.

Clark scored a game-high 18 points and added nine rebounds in Harvard’s 69-57 win over Rhode Island on Tuesday, falling one rebound shy of recording her second career double-double. She hit 8-of-9 attempts from the free-throw line against the Rams and also turned in two steals and one assist. On Sunday against Holy Cross, Clark shot 8-of-12 from the field for 17 points and added five boards, two assists and two steals.

The sophomore shares the weekly honor with Brown’s Aileen Daniels, who led the Bears to a 2-1 record while averaging 10.4 ppg, 4.7 rpg and 2.0 apg.

Clark, an Ivy League all-rookie team selection a year ago, has scored in double-digits each game this season while leading the Crimson in scoring three times. She currently ranks second in the conference in scoring (18.0), third in field-goal percentage (50.8) and fifth in rebounding (6.0).

This is the first player of the week award of Clark’s career after being named rookie of the week three times in 2010-11. Clark was named to the Ivy League honor roll Nov. 4 after averaging 22.5 ppg and 5.5 rpg at the Hawkeye Challenge.
