Girls basketball standout Dakota Dukes has committed to play at Davidson, per her mother.
Dukes is a senior this year but has played on the Cary Christian varsity since the eighth grade.
Her career totals are staggering.
Dukes will enter her last season with the Lady Knights with 2,282 points and 1,562 rebounds already accumulated. Last year, she was in the top four in the Triangle in points (23.1 per game), rebounds (14.7) and steals (4.9).
She has won three conference player of the year awards and been named to the N.C. Independent Schools Association all-state team three times as well.
Going against some of the top 4A teams in the area, Dukes set a new three-day tournament records in last year's girls GlaxoSmithKline Holiday Invitational for points (77) and rebounds (52) while being named Most Outstanding Player. She even led last year's field in steals with 12.
The 6-foot-1 forward had also garnered interest from Western Kentucky, Western Carolina, Elon, UMBC and Princeton. Dukes' mom, Carrie Dukes, said Dakota chose Davidson because it was the best fit academically and as a basketball program.
