Jarred Smith ’12 had a breakout performance for the men’s hockey team this weekend that earned him the ECAC Hockey Rookie of the Week Award. In Friday night’s 4-1 win at Colgate, Smith notched the first goal of his collegiate career to break a 1-1 tie late in the second period.

Though Brown struggled on Saturday night at Cornell, Smith came through for the Bears again, tallying the only goal of the night for the team in a 5-1 loss.

In a narrow 57-55 loss to Yale, Matt Mullery ’10, who was named to the Ivy League honor roll for the week, shone for the men’s basketball team. Mullery scored 22 points, grabbed nine rebounds and registered six blocked shots. Mullery has established himself as one of the top post men in the league this season, with averages of 16.3 points, 5.6 rebounds and 1.9 blocks per game, all of which rank in the top 10 in the league.

The women’s basketball team struggled in its 71-37 loss to Yale, but Sadiea Williams ’11 was in top form. Williams was named to the Ivy League honor roll, after leading the team with 12 points, five rebounds and four steals.
