Ian Hummer Named Ivy Player of the Week
PRINCETON -- In recognition of his strong efforts in wins over Lafayette and Saint Joseph's over the past week, sophomore Ian Hummer has been selected as the Ivy League Player of the Week for men's basketball, the Ivy office announced Monday.
Against Lafayette, Hummer had 22 points on 10-of-12 shooting while adding six rebounds, four assists and two blocked shots. It was his second career 20-point game, coming six days after scoring 24 in a loss against Presbyterian. Against Saint Joseph's, Hummer had 17 points on 8-of-12 shooting and a game-high eight rebounds while adding three assists and a steal.
In both games, Hummer led Princeton's scoring output, doing so while shooting 75% from the field on the week. For the season, Hummer is shooting 63.1% and averaging a team-high 16.0 points per game while also leading the Tigers in rebounds at 7.0 per contest. His seven blocks are second on the team, and his 17 assists are tied for third.
Among all Ivy players through Sunday's games, Hummer stands fifth in the Ivy in scoring (Austin Morgan, Yale, 18.0), tied for fourth in rebounding (Greg Mangano, Yale, 8.6), second in field goal percentage (Keith Wright, Harvard, 66.7%) and fifth in blocks (0.9; Wright, Harvard, 1.9), all while averaging just 10th in the league in minutes played (32.0; Jack Eggleston, Penn, 37.3).
Hummer is also 16th in the nation through Sunday's games in field goal percentage. The national leader is Andy Ogide of Colorado State at 70.4%.
It is the second Ivy weekly honor of Hummer's career after earning an Ivy League Rookie of the Week honor last season.
