Entering her Junior season at Bullitt East High School, Lindsey Duvall was a heralded recruit, ranked as the 10th best player in her class by ESPN. Before the season started, she committed to play for Matthew Mitchell at Kentucky, but a week later, she had another announcement.
Duvall had a grape-sized tumor on her left leg.
She remained optimistic, hoping for a quick four-to-six month turnaround to return to the game for her Senior season, but doctors would not be able to determine a proper prognosis until the tumor was surgically-removed. None of them expected to see her play this season, yet three months later, she’s back on the court. Mike Lacett of WDRB incredibly tells her inspiring story.
