Lippert Tabbed Ivy League Player of the Week

Lippert scored five points in the final 1:01 to secure Harvard's victory over BYU (Gil Talbot).

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Senior Victoria Lippert was named the Ivy League Player of the Week on Monday after registering a 15-point, 10-rebound double-double to lead the Harvard women's basketball team to a 71-65 win over BYU.

Lippert scored seven points and grabbed five rebounds in the first half, but her greatest contribution came late with the game on the line. With the score tied at 63, Lippert stepped up and hit a deep three-pointer to give the Crimson a 66-63 lead with 1:01 to play and added a pair of free throws in the final seconds to secure the victory.

Lippert currently ranks fifth in the Ivy League in scoring (13.7) and rebounding (8.0), and is fourth in the conference in three-point percentage (50.0). This is her second career Player of the Week honor and her first since Jan. 3, 2011. Harvard has now collected two awards from the Ancient Eight in as many weeks after Temi Fagbenle was named Rookie of the Week seven days ago.

The Crimson returns to action Tuesday, Nov. 20 at Holy Cross. Tipoff is set for 7 p.m.
