CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Senior Will Walker has been named Ivy League Player of the Week after having a career day on Saturday versus Princeton, conference officials announced Monday.

Walker set a career-high in points (7) and goals (6) in the win that clinched a spot for Harvard in the Ivy League Tournament.  He scored four of his six goals in the second half, including the first two of the half to put the Crimson ahead for good.

Walker's performance put him over 100 points for his career (87g, 18a) and also stands as the most goals scored by a Crimson student-athlete this season.

This is the first Ivy League Player of the Week award of Walker's career and the fourth time a member of the Crimson has earned the distinction this season. Devin Dwyer was selected twice, on March 28 and March 7, and Morgan Cheek earned the honor on February 23.  

Harvard (7-6, 3-2 Ivy League) will close out its regular season Saturday at No. 6/6 Yale with a 3:30 p.m. faceoff. The game will be broadcast live on the Ivy League Digital Network.
