Columbia junior guard Abbey Hsu has been bestowed Player of the Week honors by both the Ivy League and the Metropolitan Women’s Basketball Association (MBWA).

Hsu put on a stellar shooting performance in a 94-74 victory against Brown Saturday, scoring a game-high 26 points off 9-for-14 shooting, including a 7-for-11 showing from beyond the arc. Hsu even managed a four-point play to cap a 10-0 third quarter Columbia run that put the Lions up by 20. Hsu also recorded six rebounds, three assists and two steals.

Hsu has now been Ivy Player of the Week thrice and MBWA Player of the Week twice this season. She leads the nation in three-pointers made per game with 3.58 and ranks second in three-pointers made with 68. The sharpshooter leads the Ivy League in three-point percentage, shooting 43.8% from beyond the arc for the season.

The Parkland, Fla. native leads the Ivy League in points with 338 and ranks second in points per game with 17.8, just a tenth of a point behind Harvard sophomore guard Harmoni Turner.

The win over Brown marked Hsu’s second straight 20-point performance and eighth of the season. 

The Lions (16-3, 5-1 Ivy) are on a three-game win streak as they prepare for another home game against Dartmouth (2-18, 0-6) Saturday.
