Prior to her professional playing days and the Books and Basketball Academy, Duggan produced a standout four-year career at NCAA Division I Rider University in Lawrenceville, New Jersey. While at Rider, Duggan played in a program-best 124 games scoring 1,003 points (22nd all-time) and hauling in 834 rebounds (5th all-time) over the course of her career.
