Harvard sophomore Kenyatta Smith, who recorded 16 blocks in the Crimson’s weekend sweep of Penn and Princeton at Lavietes Pavilion, was named Ivy League Player of the Week on Monday.

Smith, a 6-foot-8 center from Sun Valley, Calif., had a school-record 10 blocks in Friday’s 73-54 rout of Penn, helping the Crimson set a team record with 15 blocks in the game. He also contributed 20 points on 8-of-9 shooting and narrowly missed a triple-double with nine rebounds.

On Saturday, in a 69-57 victory over Princeton, Smith had a perfect shooting night (5-for-5 from the field, 4-for-4 from the line) for 14 points, and he added seven rebounds and six blocks.

League-leading Harvard (15-7, 7-1) next visits Brown on Friday and Yale on Saturday.
