Buckland was a four-year member of the North Carolina Tar Heel women’s basketball team, before graduating in May 2015.

As a redshirt freshman during the 2012-13 season, Buckland averaged 5.7 points as the primary scoring option off the bench, playing in 35 games. She led the team and ranked 11th in the Atlantic Coast Conference that year after shooting 35.6 percent from beyond the three-point arc. She posted a career-high 19 points in a win over Georgia Tech and scored a team-high 17 points against Delaware in the NCAA Tournament.
While in high school at Bishop McGuinnes she was part of three state championships.
