AMERICUS – Georgia Southwestern State University head women’s basketball coach, Kelly Britsky, recently announced that Lauren Duncan will transfer from Central Georgia Technical College (CGTC) in Macon to play for the Lady Hurricanes in the fall of 2016.
“We are excited about the addition of Lauren to our family,” Britsky said. “Lauren will come to us with a wealth of experience at the guard position.”
Duncan, a five-foot-seven guard from Concord, GA, averaged 9.7 points last season for the Lady Titans. She ranked seventh in the Georgia Collegiate Athletic Association (GCAA) with a 33.8 shooting percentage from beyond the arc.
“We will look to Lauren to use her three-point range early and often,” Britsky said.
Over Duncan’s two years at CGTC the Lady Titans posted a 39-21 overall record and a 23-11 mark in the GCAA. Her best game this past season came on Nov. 20 at Clinton Junior College when she connected on six of 12 shots from long range en route to a game-high 23 points. Duncan scored in double digits 13 times during her sophomore campaign. She has been successful in the classroom as well, earning GCAA All-Academic Team honors.
Duncan had a stellar prep career as a two-sport athlete at Pike County High School in Zebulon, GA. She earned All-State First Team softball honors and holds three school records (most hits, most doubles, and highest batting average). Duncan was a three-time All-Region player on the hardwood and a member of the 2013 Georgia Athletic Coaches Association All-State Team.
