Princeton freshman Spencer Weisz has been named the Ivy League Rookie of the Week, the Ivy office announced this morning.

It is the second Ivy weekly award for Princeton this season after T.J. Bray earned Ivy Player of the Week honors last week.

Weisz was chosen for the honor after his 17-point, 10-rebound performance against Fairleigh Dickinson Saturday night in Jadwin Gym, netting him his first double-double as a Tiger and making him the fourth Princeton player this season with a double-double game. Princeton hasn't had four players with double-doubles in a full season since 2002-03.

Weisz, who leads Princeton freshmen in most statistical categories, is sixth on the team in scoring at 8.9 points per game and has started six of the seven contests. He co-leads Princeton in blocked shots, with six, and is the most accurate Tiger from the field among those averaging at least two field goal tries a game at .618 (21-34).

Weisz, a Florham Park, N.J. native who played at Seton Hall Prep, will have the chance this week to be the first Tiger from New Jersey to play in a win at Rutgers since assistant coach Brian Earl '99 in 1997. The Tigers, who are off to their best start since 1997-98 at 6-1, will hit the RAC in Piscataway for a 7:30 tip Wednesday night in a game that can be seen on ESPN3.com.
