Congratulations to former Bay State Jaguars’ teammates Sophie Bikofsky (Brown) and Blake Dietrick (Princeton) on being named Co Ivy League Players of the Week by Ivy League Sports. The honor is Blake’s fourth Ivy League Player of the Week Award already this season.
Brown senior guard Sophie Bikofsky (Newton, Mass.) led her team to a 2-1 week, reaching the 20-point plateau in all three games and averaging 21.3 points per contest. She netted 23 points on 7-of-14 shooting from downtown against UC Riverside, 21 on 7-of-12 shooting from the floor against Howard and 20 points on six three-pointers at Morgan State. For the week, Bikofsky shot 55.2 percent from downtown (16-of-29) and 57.1 percent from the field (20-of-35).
Bikofsky is the first Bear to receive Player of the Week since she herself took home her first career honor on Nov. 18, 2013.
Princeton senior guard Blake Dietrick (Wellesley, Mass.), was named Most Outstanding Player at the Fordham Holiday Classic after averaging 20.5 points, 5.0 rebounds, 5.5 assists and 1.5 steals in wins over Hartford and the host Rams. Dietrick netted 27 points on 10-of-13 shooting against the Hawks, and then flirted with a triple-double in the win over Fordham, with 14 points, six rebounds and seven assists.
Dietrick takes home her fourth Player of the Week honor of the season and eighth of her career, moving into a tie for eighth-place on the Ivy League all-time list.
