CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Senior co-captain Siyani Chambers was named the Ivy League Co-Player of the Week and freshman Bryce Aiken earned Ivy League Rookie of the Week, the conference announced Monday. 

Chambers averaged 15.5 points per game over the 2-0 weekend, adding 6.5 assists to just 1.5 turnovers. The Golden Valley, Minnesota native scored nine points in the second half comeback against Yale, including seven over the last four minutes to secure the Crimson win. Spencer Weisz of Princeton shared the honor with Chambers. 

Aiken matched and then broke his career high with 23 and 27 points against Brown and Yale, respectively. The Randolph, New Jersey product paced the Crimson in both games, leading a comeback of 10 against the Bears and of eight against the Bulldogs. The 27 points on the road at Yale marked the most for a freshman since Kyle Casey in 2010 at Brown.

Chambers has been named Ancient Eight Player of the Week four times in his career. This is the second weekly honor for Aiken, and the fourth time a rookie has earned the distinction this year.

The Crimson is home for the next four games, starting with Columbia and Cornell this weekend. Both tips are set for 7 p.m.
