Season highlights: Depleted by graduation and a slew of injuries, the Raiders went into the season with a vastly different look, yet still managed to go 11-13 and extend its streak of qualifying for the postseason to 14 straight seasons, despite a smaller playoff field in Class 6A (32 teams as opposed to 48). Duncan was one of the small number of regulars back from last season’s team and he as a key, especially on the defensive end, where he piled up the second-most blocks in all of 6A with 85 rejections on the season. His ability to protect the rim — which included nine-block games against Far Northeast and Grandview — helped earn him a spot on the 6A All-City League (formerly Denver Prep) first team. Duncan scored a season-high 14 points against both Fairview and George Washington and had four double-digit scoring games, while he also led his team in rebounding. Duncan earned selection to the A-Town All-Star Game for the first time.

Duncan vs. Aurora teams: vs. Smoky Hill (4 points, 7 rebounds); vs. Regis Jesuit (8 points, 3 rebounds); vs. Grandview (6 points, 9 blocks); vs. Vista PEAK (6 points, 5 rebounds, 5 blocks); vs. Hinkley (6 points, 8 rebounds); vs. Aurora Central (6 points, 5 rebounds, 7 blocks)
