HUNTINGTON, Ind. - The north side of Chicago is the home of Huntington University Women's Basketball Coach Lori Culler’s newest recruit, Lincoln Park High School standout Kennedi McCoy.

McCoy poured in 25 points, ripped down 20 rebounds and handed out five dimes per game this past season for the Lions. The 6-2 center saved her best performance for postseason where she collected a season-best 34 points in opening round of tournament play.

The Chicago native is a three-time MVP and has twice earned tournament MVP honors in addition to boasting a best tournament player MVP trophy.

“We are so pleased that Kennedi will be continuing her academic and athletic careers at Huntington,” said Coach Lori Culler. “What immediately catches your attention about Kennedi on the basketball court is her athleticism, her speed and her length. 

“She glides up and down the floor in transition and has a vertical that makes her an intimidating shot blocker. She also has a strong work ethic and desire to learn, all of which will help her in adjusting to the college game.

In addition to McCoy’s contributions athletically, Culler looks equally forward to some of the intangibles. “We are just as excited about her leadership skills and the impact she will make not only in our program but on our campus as a whole.”

McCoy plans to major in journalism at Huntington.
