Duffy made an immediate impact in her first year on the sidelines for the Red Storm, helping head coach Kim Barnes Arico guide St. John's to a 25-7 overall record, 12-4 BIG EAST record and second round appearance in the NCAA Tournament. She also played an instrumental part in guiding freshman point guard, Nadirah McKenith, to BIG EAST All-Freshman team honors and to being a final candidate for the Nancy Lieberman Award, honoring the nation's top point guard in women's college basketball.
In her second season, Duffy helped guide the Red Storm to its second-consecutive NCAA appearance and furthered the success of McKenith as she was once again on the Nancy Lieberman Award candidate list.
Duffy's extensive knowledge of the game of basketball derives from her highly-decorated collegiate playing career at BIG EAST rival-Notre Dame, her time with USA Basketball and her successful playing career internationally and in the WNBA.
A four-year letter winner for the Fighting Irish from 2003-2006, Duffy helped lead Notre Dame to four straight NCAA Tournament appearances which included two Sweet 16 berths. A southpaw point guard, Duffy finished her career as the third player in Notre Dame history to amass 1,000 points, 500 assists and 200 steals. Her career scoring total of 1,290 ranks 16th in school history.
Duffy was honored as an Associated Press All-American and Kodak All-American honorable mention selection from 2004-06 and was a John Wooden Award Finalist in her final season with the Irish. She won the prestigious Frances Pomeroy Naismith Award in 2005-06, which is given annually to the nation's top women's basketball point guard under five-foot-eight inches. Duffy was also a two-time All-BIG EAST first team selection (2004-06) and an honorable mention to the All-Conference team in 2003-04.
Duffy was first introduced to international basketball as she co-captained and earned a gold medal with USA Basketball in the 2005 World University Games. She then went on to enjoy a successful professional basketball career in the WNBA with the Minnesota Lynx and New York Liberty. Duffy also played overseas with teams in Romania, Slovakia, Italy and Wales.
Duffy graduated from Notre Dame in 2006 with a double-degree in psychology and computer applications. She is currently pursuing a masters degree in sports management at St. John's University.
