The 6-foot-2 post played her freshman year with her hometown Winnipeg Wesmen in 2012-2013 where she finished second in team scoring, averaging 10.0 points per-game and adding 4.0 rebounds per-contest.
The former Westwood Warrior standout and provincial team member also hit 63 of her 77 free throw attempts for a .818 percentage, good for fifth in the conference in that category that year.
"My first season here at BU, we played Lauren and at 6-foot-2 she was a handful. She has a great understanding of the game; a great touch and can do different things," said Brandon head coach Novell Thomas. "She's a seasoned player and two years ago I nominated her to the Canada West all-rookie team. She'll give us depth and experience at the post position along with rebounding and scoring."
Anderson joins Brandon high school standout Desirae Peiffer and American Keisha Cox as newcomers to the women's basketball team for this fall.
Anderson is enrolled in the physical education studies program, with the long-term goal of becoming a teacher.
"I'm very excited to be part of the women's basketball team," said Anderson. "After meeting coach Thomas and seeing how he is building his program, I really feel that playing at BU not only gives me the opportunity to play CIS basketball again, but also to be a part of a great program."
