Spencer Weisz was selected by the Ivy League's coaches as the Ivy Rookie of the Year and T.J. Bray was a unanimous pick for first-team All-Ivy League, the league office announced Wednesday.

Weisz is Princeton's first Ivy League Rookie of the Year since Konrad Wysocki '04 in 2001 and the sixth since the award came about in 1971. Brian Taylor '84 (entered with the Class of 1973) was the award's first winner in 1971, followed by Bob Roma '79 in 1977, Rick Hielscher '95 in 1992, Chris Young '02 in 1999 and Wysocki.

Bray gives the Tigers a player on the first team in four straight seasons, after Kareem Maddox '11 in 2011 and Ian Hummer '13 in 2012 and 2013. It's the longest stretch that Princeton has had a first-teamer since 1988-2001, when Princeton had an honoree in 14 straight seasons.

Bray, a second-team all-league pick a year ago, has 995 career points, getting 439 of them, or 44.1 percent, this season. During the conference season, Bray led Princeton in scoring (19.2 ppg), steals (21, 1.5 spg), assists (59, 4.2 apg) and rebounds (5.5 rpg) while netting a .546 field goal percentage, .403 from 3-point range and .821 from the free throw line. Bray will graduate Princeton as the only player on record with three 100-assist seasons (stat kept since 1974-75) and he stands third in career assists, with 361. Earlier this season, he had a 10-assist game with no turnovers against George Mason and he set the school record for assists in a game with 13 at Penn State. He's the first Princeton player since Kit Mueller '91 to have two double-doubles in a season that came via points and assists.

Weisz started the season as the first Princeton rookie since Douglas Davis '12 and Patrick Saunders '12 at the start of the 2008-09 campaign to start his collegiate debut. He started six early-season games and then returned to the starting five for the last 12 contests. Over the course of the season, Weisz posted 13 double-digit scoring games, plus four more nine-point games. Three times this season, Weisz grabbed at least 10 rebounds, including double-double performances against Fairleigh Dickinson and Dartmouth, and his 136 rebounds on the season were the most for a Princeton freshman since Young had 160 in 1998-99 during his own Ivy Rookie of the Year performance.
