For the third time this season, Crimson basketball forward Emma Markley ’11 has been named Ivy League Player of the Week. Markley had 18 points, 10 rebounds, and two blocks in the Crimson’s 18-point win against Cornell on Friday (Feb. 13). Then, in a 71-74 loss to Columbia on Saturday (Feb. 14), Markley tied her career-high of 27 points, while adding career-bests in rebounds with 14 and blocks with eight.
Markley, who was the top scorer in both games, is currently the league’s fourth-leading scorer, second in field goal percentage, and second in blocks.
Markley and the second-place Crimson (13-8; 5-2 Ivy League), which had a five-game winning streak snapped by Columbia, will look to start a new streak this weekend as Harvard hosts Princeton at 7 p.m. on Friday (Feb. 20) and Penn at 6 p.m. on Saturday (Feb. 21). Princeton is just a game behind Harvard in the Ivy standings while Penn is two games behind the Crimson.
