Averaged 18.5 Points In Two Games

NEW HAVEN, Conn. – Javier Duren, who averaged 18.5 points in two games last week, has been named the Ivy League Player of the Week.

Duren shared the honor with Brown's Sean McGonagill.

Against No. 19 UConn, Duren had 15 points, four assists and three rounds in 36 minutes. Three days later against Rutgers, Duren had another big game, scoring a career-high 22 points and adding four rebounds and three assists.

Duren, a junior from Saint Louis, Mo., has scored in double figures in each of Yale's three games this season. He leads the team in assists (10) and steals (4) and is second in scoring (17.7 ppg.).

Duren is the second Bulldog to be honored this season. Justin Sears was the Co-Player of the Week last week.

The Bulldogs are back in action on Tuesday night when they play their home opener against Sacred Heart at 7 p.m. in the John J. Lee Amphitheater.
