PRINCETON, N.J. – Harvard men's basketball sophomore Noah Kirkwood and senior Chris Lewis were named to the all-Ivy League first and second teams, respectively, the conference announced on Tuesday. The honor is the first for Kirkwood and second for Lewis.
A native of Ottawa, Ontario, Kirkwood landed on the first team 12 months after being named the Ivy League Rookie of the Year. The sophomore averaged a team-best 13.2 points to go with 3.8 rebounds, 1.5 assists and a Harvard-high 23 three-pointers in conference play. Kirkwood reached double figures in scoring 11 of 13 Ivy games and had his best game of the campaign against Columbia with a season-high 22 points and career-best 10 boards. The Crimson has now had an all-Ivy first-teamer four consecutive years.
Lewis, meanwhile, collected his first postseason conference award since the 2017-18 campaign when he was voted to the first team. A senior from Alpharetta, Georgia, Lewis averaged 11.2 points and 5.5 rebounds against Ivy competition, both of which were second on the team. The forward, however, led the Crimson in field goal percentage (.552), blocked shots (23) and steals (17), while starting all 14 games.
Harvard finished the regular season with a 21-8 record and was the runner-up in the Ivy League at 10-4. The 21 victories were the most since the 2014-15 campaign when it racked up 22 wins.
