Heckman, who is out of Centennial, Colo., suffered a torn ACL in preseason practice last season and never appeared in a contest at Duke due to the injury.  

A Second Team All-State, First Team All-League and All-City honoree as a senior at Regis Jesuit H.S., where she averaged 10.8 points, 6.7 rebounds, 2.5 steals and 1.9 blocks.
