PRINCETON, N.J. – Setting a new program record while moving into fourth all-time in the conference record books, first-year guard Noah Kirkwood has been selected as the Ivy League Rookie of the Week for the seventh time this season, and fourth consecutively. He is the sixth player in Ancient Eight history to win at least four honors in a row.
The Ottawa, Ontario native led all Ivy rookies with 11.0 points per game this week, while adding 6.0 rebounds and 1.5 steals per night. He had 12 points and nine rebounds at Cornell, before adding 10 points against Columbia, including the two game-tying free throws to send the game to overtime.
Kirkwood leads all first-year players with 10.4 points per game, helping Harvard to its seventh Ivy League championship in nine years, and second in-a-row. The Crimson will take on Penn in the semifinals of the Ivy League Tournament, presented by TIAA, on Saturday at 12:30 p.m. on ESPNU.
