For the fourth consecutive week Princeton women's basketball senior Niveen Rasheed has been named Ivy League Player of the Week. The guard earns the accolade for the sixth time this year and 13th time of her career, bringing her to second all-time in league history.

Behind a pair of double figure victories over Columbia and Cornell, Rasheed helped guide Princeton to its 33rd consecutive Ivy victory to establish a new league record. The co-captain maintains her undefeated stance in Ivy play, having been part of 37 victories during her three-plus year career. She missed the entire 2011 Ivy slate due to injury, the last time the Tigers lost a conference game.

Rasheed has scored in double figures in 22 games, including the last 21 consecutive. On Feb. 22 versus Columbia, she tallied 15 points, a game-high seven rebounds, four assists and four steals. The next night versus Cornell, Rasheed recorded game-highs in points (14), assists (5) and steals (5).

The guard is averaging 17 points, 9.1 rebounds and 3.3 assists per game. She shares the weekly accolade with Penn's Alyssa Baron.

Riding an 11-game winning streak, the Tigers (18-5, 9-0 Ivy) head to Harvard and Dartmouth this weekend for their final road trip of the regular season.
