WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Coach Karen Barefoot called it the “perfect Christmas present” as she and the UNCW Women’s Basketball team offered local star Lacey Suggs a scholarship.
With her parents, high school coach and entire UNCW Women’s team surrounding her, Coach Barefoot presented Lacey with her scholarship wrapped in christmas paper.
Suggs, a graduate of East Bladen High School, is in her second year with the Seahawks after walking on with the program last year. When Coach Barefoot came to the program, Lacey’s role with the team has flourished.
This season she is averaging 14.3 points per game and topped the double-digit scoring mark in 6 of the 9 games this season.
