12 Points in Two Games Earns Dwyer Ivy League Player of the Week

Dwyer totaled 12 points last week to earn his second Player of the Week honor of the year (Gil Talbot).

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Senior Devin Dwyer has been named Ivy League Player of the Week following strong performances against No. RV/RV Boston University and Dartmouth, conference officials announced Monday.

Dwyer registered four goals and one assist versus Boston University, and added three goals and four assists versus Dartmouth. These performances continued Dwyer's hot streak, who has now recorded at least five points in seven of nine games this season, including six hat tricks.

The Tewaaraton Award candidate has scored at least one point in 42-straight games, the fourth-longest active streak in the NCAA. Meanwhile, his 48 points (28g, 20a) this season are one shy of his career high and are good for second in the nation in points per game (5.33). Dwyer ranks fourth in Harvard history with 187 points and is also fourth with 111 assists.

This is the third Ivy League Player of the Week award of Dwyer's career, and second of the season. He last received the award on March 7, after posting a six-point performance that lifted the Crimson over then No. 4/4 Duke. This is the third time that a Harvard student-athlete has been named Player of the Week this year, as sophomore Morgan Cheek was also selected on Feb. 23.

Dwyer shares this week's award with Penn's Reed Junkin who stopped 14 shots in the Quakers 9-6 win over Cornell.

Harvard, which is 5-4 (1-1 Ivy League) this season, is currently listed as receiving votes in both the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA)/Nike Division I Coaches' Poll and the Cascade/Maverik Media Poll.

The Crimson is back in action Wednesday at No. 9/10 Albany for a 7 p.m. faceoff.
