Bain Picks Up Second Ivy League Player of the Week Honor

Bain has registered 13 double-doubles and six triple-doubles (Gil Talbot).

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Sophomore Corinne Bain has been named the Ivy League Player of the Week for a second time this season after helping the Crimson take sole possession of second place in the Ancient Eight standings with wins over Penn and Princeton.

Bain turned in her sixth triple-double of the season in Friday night's victory over Penn, scoring 12 kills, 35 assists and 13 digs while adding four aces. On Saturday, the sophomore recorded her 10th straight double-double with 23 assists and a career-high 21 digs. She also contributed eight kills and four blocks against the Tigers to finish her weekend averaging 2.50 kps, 7.25 aps and 4.25 dps.

This marks the second time this season that Bain has been named the Ancient Eight's Player of the Week, third time in her career, and is the fourth conference award earned by the Crimson on the year. Caroline Walters earned both Sports Imports/AVCA National Player of the Week and Ivy League Player of the Weeks honors on Sept. 23, while Paige Kebe was tabbed as the conference's rookie of the week Oct. 14.

Harvard welcomes Dartmouth to the Malkin Athletic Center this Friday, Oct. 24 at 7 p.m. The Crimson's 5-2 record against the Ancient Eight has the team just one game behind Yale for the top spot in the conference, while its 12-4 overall record is the best in program history through 16 matches.
