PLAYER BIO

Carol Duncan, a 6'2 junior center/forward from NorthWood, visited Mackey unofficially on 1/16/01 for the Northwestern game. She possesses a good eye for rebounding, and is particularly good on the offensive boards. Basketball isn't the only game Duncan excels in playing. She was a state finalist in the high jump and is an all-state choice in volleyball.
Duncan finished her career with 1,214 points and 828 rebounds. As a senior, she averaged 14.5 points and 9.4 rebounds, placing her as her conference's top rebounder and second in scoring. Carol was named to the all-state first team by Indiana coaches, and was named to the Indiana All-Star team as the state's best post player. NorthWood finished the season 16-6.

As a junior, Duncan averaged 17.3 points and 11.1 rebounds for a 19-4 team. She was again NorthWood's top scorer, and was named to the Indiana Junior All-Star team.

As a sophomore, Duncan averaged 13.4 points and was NorthWood's top scorer. NorthWood suffered a 48-44 loss to Wawasee in first round sectional play, finishing 16-5.

Duncan started 24 games as a freshman for the sixth-ranked Panthers. She averaged 8.0 points while shooting 51.9 percent from the field and 72.7 percent from the line. NorthWood won the Class 3A state championship game against Cathedral, finishing 24-3. Duncan also led NorthWood in rebounding (7.2 per game) and blocked shots (41).

Duncan verballed to Purdue on March 17, 2001, and signed with Purdue during the early signing period in November 2001.

3-16-02...The Hoosierland Report site has some scouting from the recently completed Top 40 Workout, a camp used by the Indiana All-Star selection committee as a way to sort through the top senior talent in the state. While Carol Duncan and Sharika Webb look to have improved their chances of making the team, Ashley Mays may be on the bubble. Here's the word on Duncan from the camp..."Coming in to the workout, many people had questions about who the Indianapolis Star would select for its post players on the Indiana All-Star team. There seemed to be one consensus among everyone and that was and is Carol Duncan (6'2 C) of NorthWood, who is going to play her college basketball at Purdue. Duncan was the best "combination" of size and athleticism at the workout." (3-14-02, Hoosierland Report)
