Bensen and Woods earn weekly honors


After this weekend's games, women's lacrosse senior attack Tory Bensen and men's basketball freshman guard Antonio Woods received Ivy League offensive player of the week and Ivy League rookie of the week honors respectively.

Woods finished the weekend — which featured wins against Columbia and Cornell — averaging 11.0 points and 7.5 assists.  This is the third consecutive week in which Woods has been honored and the fifth time this season.

In the wake of the announcement of coach Jerome Allen's firing on Saturday, the team put together a strong performance in a win over Cornell that saw Woods post his first career double-double with 15 points and 11 assists.

Bensen earned her first award of the season with strong outings against Rutgers and Brown.  The senior averaged 5.0 points per game over the two contest and currently leads the Quakers with 16 goals on the season.

Bensen's mark of 4.0 goals per game ranks second in the nation as the Darien, Conn., native has been off to a fast start this year.  Penn is 4-0 on the season thanks in part to an offense that has scored 11.75 goals per game.
