T.J. Bray and Spencer Weisz not only helped Princeton to a road sweep of Rutgers and Penn State but also have led the Tigers to a sweep of the Ivy League weekly honors.

Each for the second time this year, Bray has been named the Ivy League Player of the Week for men's basketball and Weisz has been named the Ivy Rookie of the Week.

Bray shined in different ways in each of the two games. Against Rutgers, Bray recorded 20 of his career-high-matching 23 points in the second half, while also dishing out eight assists, as the Tigers held off Rutgers 78-73. At Penn State, Bray broke a school record of nearly 30 years set by William Ryan '84 in 1984 when he tallied 13 assists in Princeton's 81-79 overtime comeback victory. Bray also scored 11 points for the second double-double both of his career and season, both of the points-assists variety.

Weisz became the first Princeton player from New Jersey to play in a win at the Rutgers RAC since Brian Earl '99 in 1997 when he grabbed eight rebounds, second-most of his career, and scored five points in the win. At Penn State, he scored 13 points, third-most of his Princeton career, and had an essential steal and 2-2 trip to the free-throw line to make it 66-66 and take the game to overtime.

It is the second time in a year that Princeton has swept both the Ivy Player and Rookie awards. Ian Hummer '13 and Hans Brase did so on Dec. 24, 2012.

Princeton, at 8-1 for the first time since the 1997-98 season, will head to Las Vegas to face Pacific and Portland in the South Point Holiday Hoops Classic beginning Friday.
