Emily Duckhorn Signs With Roosevelt University!

01/30/2015 4:39 PM -

Lake Park sharpshooter Emily Duckhorn (Roselle, Ill.) has inked to play for the Roosevelt women's basketball team starting in 2015-16.

Duckhorn is a 5-foot-5 guard who plays for coach Brian Rupp at Lake Park, the same school that produced former four-year Roosevelt standout Tori Clark.

As a member of the Lancers, Duckhorn is averaging 13.0 points and nearly three made 3-point field goals per game, leading the DuPage Valley Conference with 2.7 3PT FGM. She has canned 62 shots from downtown in 23 contests.

This season she connected on six treys en route to 25 points against Carmel, and her mantle is full of all-tournament recognition from events including the Hoffman Estates Thanksgiving Tourney, the Benet Holiday Tournament and the Mundelein Christmas Tournament. She was also named a Player of the Week by the Daily Herald.

As a junior, Duckhorn averaged 11.3 points and 2.4 threes per game, leading the DuPage Valley Conference in free throw percentage (81 percent). She garnered All-DuPage Valley Conference honors and earned Daily Herald All-Area Honorable Mention recognition during a season in which she also claimed a spot on the Hoffman Estates Thanksgiving All-Tournament Team.

Duckhorn's AAU playing experience comes by way of the Chicago Bulls/Sox Academy.

"Emily will bring us some much-needed three-point shooting next season," said Scherr-Wells. "Like all great shooters, Emily is a tireless worker when it comes to getting up shots. She has good footwork and a quick release, which are two of the most important things shooters need to transition from being successful in high school to being successful in college.

"I am looking forward to coaching Emily and helping her make that transition to the college game, as well as helping her develop the other aspects of her game."

Duckhorn also thrives academically as a highest honor roll student at Lake Park.

"Roosevelt provided me with the perfect combination of academics, athletics, and overall college experience I was looking for," said Duckhorn. "I want to major in education and Roosevelt's [College] of Education was impressive.

"I love the basketball program and felt Coach Scherr-Wells was the kind of coach I want to play for," Duckhorn continued. "The downtown Chicago campus was the icing on the cake. I love the excitement of the city."
