CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – For the second straight week and fourth time this season, Harvard women's volleyball's Corinne Bain has been named the Ivy League Player of the Week, conference officials announced Tuesday.

Bain shares this week's honor with Mollie Rodgers of Yale after turning in back-to-back triple-doubles in wins at Princeton and Penn. The sophomore first recorded 12 kills, 34 assists and 22 digs at Princeton, before adding 14 kills, 26 assists and 15 digs at Penn.

A native of Manhattan Beach, Calif., Bain leads the NCAA with 10 triple-doubles and has also posted 17 double-doubles in just 21 matches played. She has been named the Ivy League's Player of the Week four times this year, and boasts 10 career weekly awards from the conference after earning player of the week once and rookie of the week five times a season ago.

Harvard and Yale currently share first place in the Ivy League with identical 10-2 marks. The Crimson will close out the year at home this weekend against Columbia and Cornell, while the Bulldogs will wrap up their season by hosting Princeton and Penn. Should the two archrivals finish in a tie for the Ancient Eight crown, Harvard would host a playoff match the following weekend to determine the conference's automatic bid to the NCAA tournament.
