Cornell Athletics Press Release on Ivy Awards

Cornell Athletics

ITHACA, N.Y. -- Cornell junior guard Chris Wroblewski has been named the Ivy League Player of the Week after a pair of strong performances this past week at VCU's Holidays on the Hardwood Tournament in Richmond, Va. The award is the first of the season by a Big Red men's basketball player, and is the third weekly honor in his career for Wroblewski, who was a two-time Ivy League Rookie of the Week in 2008-09.

In his two games at the VCU tournament, Wroblewski averaged 17.5 points, 9.0 assists, 4.5 rebounds and 1.0 steals while making 5-of-9 3-pointers (56 percent).

In the win over defending Southern Conference champion Wofford, Wroblewski scored 21 points and dished 12 assists, the second-best single-game assists total in school history. He added five rebounds and hit all four of his attempts from 3-point range in directing an offense that shot 64 percent from the floor and 71 percent from beyond the three-point arc. Wroblewski opened the week with 14 points, six assists, four rebounds and two steals in a two-point loss to New Hampshire.

Wroblewski and the Big Red will play host to Buffalo tonight at 7 p.m. at Newman Arena in Bartels Hall.
