PRINCETON, N.J.- On the heels of a career-best 13 points against Harvard (Jan. 12), freshman Lakin Roland (Jeffersonville, Ind.) was named Ivy League Rookie of the Week. Roland joins Abbey Schmitt as Big Green players who have claimed Rookie of the Week honors this season.
Roland has come into her own as of late and her 13 points against Harvard marked her first career game in double figures. The forward also went 5-of-5 from the charity stripe with one block and just one turnover in 24 minutes of action.
The Indiana native has set a career high in three of Dartmouth's last four games. She posted a career-best nine rebounds against Villanova (Dec. 30) and had four steals against Holy Cross (Jan. 3). Roland is averaging 2.9 points and 2.6 rebounds in 13 appearances this season. She is also shooting .750 percent (18-of-24) from the free throw line.
Dartmouth will take some time off before hosting Ivy League foe, Harvard, at Leede Arena on Jan. 26. Tipoff is set for 7 p.m.
