Personal Info

Duncan is the seventh head coach in program history and he makes his LCU coaching debut in the 2011-2012 season after 15 seasons as the athletic director and head boy's basketball coach at Lubbock based Trinity Christian School, where he has been since the spring of 1996.  At Trinity Christian, Duncan led the Lions to eight Final Four appearances in the TAPPS State Tournament, including this past season, where the No.4 Lions finished the season with a 32-4 record.  Duncan, who completed his tenure at TCHS with just under 400 career wins, claimed a State Championship in 1999.
Duncan's playing career began at Coronado High School, where he graduated in 1985.  He began his college career at Midland College, where he played alongside Mookie Blaylock from 1985-1987.  Duncan still holds Midland College's single-season records for three-point shooting percentage (.584) and free-throw shooting (86.9%) from the 1986-87 season.  He returned home in 1987 transferring to Texas Tech University and suiting up with the Red Raiders from 1987-1989. His shooting percentages followed him to Texas Tech.  Duncan co-owns Tech's single-game mark for three-point shooting percentage (5-of-5, 100%) and is the Red Raiders career three-point shooting percentage leader with a career mark of .459 behind the arc.  Over his two seasons with the Red Raiders, Duncan knocked down 132 three-pointers, which ranks ninth all-time.  From the free-throw line, Duncan ranks sixth all-time in Tech history with an 86.7% career free-throw percentage.
He played in several pro leagues following his Tech tenure, including stops in the Global Basketball Association, with the Pensacola HotShots, and in the Chinese Professional League.  His trip to Taiwan has not been his only international tour.  Duncan has been very active with the Sports For Christ mission teams, combining basketball and ministry to Panama and Trinidad Tobago.  He has led students to seven missionary tours, including a recent trip to Panama.  He is also very instrumental in the Todd Duncan Basketball Camps, which he has conducted annually since 1989.  Duncan joins the LCU family with his wife Holly and their two children...daughter Ashton (11) and son Ethan (8).
