Lauren Huggins is eager to return to the floor after missing the final three months of her true freshman season. A medical hardship was granted this summer which allows her to regain her freshman year of eligibility. 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.

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, and aspires to be a pediatric surgeon.

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.
