NEW HAVEN, Conn. – After leading the Yale women's basketball team to its first Ivy League road sweep in five years this past weekend, senior forward Jen Berkowitz (Wayland, Mass.) has been named Ivy League Co-Player of the Week. The league office announced the honor on Monday.
Berkowitz led the team in scoring each night, scoring 21 points Friday night (shooting 62.5 percent) in the win at Columbia and 18 points Saturday night (shooting 80.0 percent) in the win at Cornell. She had five rebounds Friday and eight Saturday.
Berkowitz leads the league in field goal percentage (.571), is third in the league in free throw percentage (.733), is fifth in the league in scoring (15.3 ppg) and is eighth in the league in rebounding (7.6 rpg).
