Feaster, Hill Collect Ivy League Awards

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

To the victors go the spoils.

At least, this was the case yesterday for three members of the Harvard women's basketball team. Sophomore forward Allison Feaster was selected as Ivy League Player of the Year and senior Elizabeth Proudfit and junior Jessica Gelman were respectively named to the first and second All-Ivy teams:

Feaster led the Crimson in scoring (18.2 points per game), rebounding (10.1 rebounds per game) and steals (67).

"I'm very honored and proud," Feaster said. "I think winning the Ivy title probably had a lot to do with it. Our team had an excellent season."

The sophomore power forward likely solidified the honor with a sensational final week. Feaster scored a career-high 31 points against Brown, followed by 21-point and 26-point performances versus Yale and Dartmouth.

"I kind of felt like I wasn't maximizing my potential after being hurt for several weeks," Feaster said. "I knew I had to step up my individual play."

Proudfit finished second on the team in scoring (10.9 ppg) and assists (97). The senior shooting guard was also named to the All-Tournament team at UConn's Connecticut Classic.

"It's definitely an honor," Proudfit said. "You don't really think about that during the year. It is nice to get recognized."

Gelman averaged 10.7 points per game and led Harvard with 140 assists.

"I think she's the best point guard in the league," Proudfit said. "She's on my first team All-Ivy."

The Harvard men's basketball team also claimed several honors.

Freshman point guard Tim Hill garnered the Ivy League Rookie of the Year honors, while junior forward Kyle Snowden was named first-team All-Ivy.

Hill set a Harvard record for freshmen, dishing out 136 assists for an average of 5.2 per game. The Crimson floor leader also ranked third on the team in scoring (10.1 ppg) and averaged 38 minutes per game.

Snowden was Harvard's top scorer (15.1 ppg), but more impressively, finished the season as the nation's tenth-leading rebounder (11.1 rpg).

He was the only player in the Ancient Eight to rank among the top five in scoring, rebounding, field goal percentage and free throw percentage.
