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 [1] 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.
