PRINCETON, N.J.  Sophomore guard Katie Benzan has been selected as the Ivy League Player of the Week, as announced by the conference office Monday. This marks the second consecutive week a Harvard student-athlete has earned the accolade as senior Taylor Rooks was recognized last week.

Benzan had an exceptional weekend, guiding the Crimson to wins over Columbia and Cornell. In the triumph over Columbia, the Wellesley, Massachusetts native scored 20 points on 8-of-11 shooting. She also dished out five assists and had three steals. She followed that performance with another 20-point outing against Cornell Saturday, making 5-of-7 3-point attempts. Benzan continued to set up her teammates, handing out seven assists.

For the weekend, Benzan made 66.7 percent (14-of-21) of her field goal attempts and 69.2 percent (9-of-13) of her 3-point shots.

Freshman Jadyn Bush was also recognized by the Ivy League, earning a spot on the weekly honor roll after posting her first career double-double (12 points, 11 rebounds) against the Big Red.
