First-year Yale forward Camilla Emsbo was named the Ivy League Rookie of the Week.
Emsbo scored 15 points in the season opener and 21 in the second game, placing her third in the league with an 18.0 points per game average. No other Ivy rookie averaged more than 15.0 points per game last week. Emsbo totaled 22 rebounds, tied with junior forward Megan Gorman for the league lead, and had seven blocks (second in the league).
Emsbo was a five-star ESPN recruit out of Lakewood High School, and ESPN ranked her as the No. 34 best recruit in the country (sixth-best at her position). She was the Gatorade Player of the Year for Colorado.
Emsbo is in Branford College at Yale. Her identical twin sister, Kira, plays for Princeton.
Princeton Head Coach Courtney Banghart was quoted by the Princeton Alumni Weekly earlier this month, saying she expected all six of the freshmen on her team, including Kira Emsbo, would be likely to see gametime "early and often."
“This freshman class has been as talented as we’d hoped,” Banghart said. “We knew it was a good class. It’s been nationally heralded, but they’re freshmen and they can’t hide because there’s four of them on each team in practice."
The two teams are scheduled to play eachother twice this season, Feb. 8 and March 9.
