Huggins Videos

Lauren Huggins is set to build on a season where she finally was able to achieve some consistency on the floor. After an injury-limiting rookie year, she was able to fit into being a key-part in Colorado’s back court rotation. She is a great shooter with range that extends well beyond the 3-point arc. The first Colorado signee of the Linda Lappe era, she provides the back court with a fantastic scoring option from long distance.

2013-14 (Freshman - Medical Hardship): Appeared in 26 games, all-off the bench, and ranked second on the team with 36 3-point field goals. Huggins was Colorado’s most accurate long-range shooter, hitting on 36.4 percent beyond the arc, a mark good enough to rank 11th in the Pac-12 Conference. She scored a career-high 16 points in the win over Alcorn State (11/15), hitting a team season-best five 3-pointers. Huggins matched that output later in the season, during the home win over Arizona (1/24), she made 5-of-8 from downtown, finishing with 15 points.† She had a good all-around game against Iowa (11/20), scoring nine points, on 3-of-6 from 3-point range, with a personal-best five rebounds to go with two assists and two steals.† During that stretch of Alcorn State, Iowa and at New Mexico (11/23), Huggins made 12 Ėof-24 (.500) from downtown.† She had nine games with at least two 3-pointers and hit one in each of Colorado’s five postseason contests, making 7-of-13 during that run (.538).

2012-13 (Freshman): Huggins played in five games, averaging 2.4 points and 1.2 rebound in 6.0 minutes per game. She scored all 12 of her season’s points on 3-pointers, connecting on 4-of-11 from downtown (.364). Her most extended time came against Colorado State (12/5) where she played 17 minutes and recorded six points, three rebounds, one steal and one blocked shot. Shortly after that game was when she was diagnosed with a stress fracture in her right leg that ultimately ended her season. She was granted a medical hardship by the NCAA in the Summer of 2013.

High School: A 2012 graduate of Heritage High School in Littleton, Huggins is the first Colorado signee for Linda Lappe’s coaching staff. A two-time All-Continental League first team selection, Huggins helped the Eagles to an 18-7 record as a senior and a spot in the Sweet 16 of the Class 5A Colorado State Tournament. She was rated as the 64th best player in the nation and the 11th best wing by ESPN HoopGurlz. She starred at 2012 edition of “The Show” Colorado’s annual high school basketball all-star game played at the Pepsi Center. Huggins was named MVP of the contest, scoring a game-high 15 points, hitting on 5-of-6 from 3-point range, in her “Blue” team’s 69-48 win. As a junior she averaged 12 points and nearly eight rebounds per game, guiding the Eagles to the 2011 Class 5A Sweet 16. A two-time honorable mention to the Class 5A All-State team, she played her club basketball with the Boulder Rockies.

Academics: Huggins is majoring in integrative physiology at CU. She earned honorable mention to the 2014 Pac-12 Women’s Basketball All-Academic team.

Personal: Born on March 28, 1994, she is the daughter of Jerry and Tracy Huggins of Littleton. She has two older sisters, Erin, a graduate of the Colorado School of Mines, and Megan a senior at CU.
