Ivy League Men's Basketball Release - Week 6 (PDF)

PHILADELPHIA - The Ivy League has announced its weekly awards in men's basketball, and Penn senior guard Tyler Bernardini has been named Co-Ivy League Player of the Week along with Harvard junior Kyle Casey.

This marks the third time Bernardini has won the Ivy League Player of the Week award.

Bernardini's award comes off arguably the best game of his career. Playing near his hometown of Carlsbad, Calif., Bernardini dropped a career-high 29 points on UCLA in the Quakers' 77-73 loss to the Bruins Saturday. Among those 29 points were eight three-point baskets, the most by a Penn player since Tim Begley hit eight on Dec. 4, 2004. It was just the fifth time in program history a player had eight or more treys in a game. Bernardini -- who shot 10-of-15 from the field including 8-of-12 beyond the arc --also led the Quakers with seven rebounds and dished off three assists.

Prior to Saturday, Bernardini scored 16 points andtied a career high with four steals in Penn's 69-60 win against Delaware at The Palestra.

Penn (5-6) is off until December 23, when the Quakers host Marist College at The Palestra. Tipoff between the Quakers and the Red Foxes is 7 p.m.
