PRINCETON, N.J. -- Ivy League men’s basketball closes out 2011 and moves into 2012 with 14 games on the schedule this week.

All eight teams are in action, mostly playing away from the friendly confines of their home arenas as only three games are on Ivy home courts. Four of those road games are in the national spotlight on the ESPN family of networks. The League has back-to-back appearances on ESPN3 with Harvard at Boston College on Thursday and Princeton at Florida State Friday. The next two days two Ancient Eight teams play on ESPNU as Yale plays at Florida in a New Year Eve matinee followed by Penn ringing in the New Year at Cameron Indoor Stadium against Duke.

PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Penn senior guard Tyler Bernardini (Carlsbad, Calif.) had a stupendous offensive game in the Quakers’ win over Marist, scoring a career-high 30 points on eight three-pointers for the second game in a row. Bernardini became the first player in school history to connect on eight three-pointers in consecutive games. He also added five rebounds, one shy of the team high for the game.

ROOKIE OF THE WEEK

Dartmouth freshman forward Jvonte Brooks (Santee, Calif.) continued his impressive rookie campaign, nearly averaging a double-double in the Big Green’s three games. Brooks started the week at Colgate with 12 points and a season-high 12 rebounds for his second career double-double. The next night at Army he hit 5-of-7 from the floor in scoring 13 points. Against Albany, Brooks was again among the Big Green’s top producers, chipping in 11 points and eight rebounds.
