Lamar’s Gardner signs with Denmark Tech

Lamar power forward signs a National Letter of Intent to continue her basketball career at Denmark Tech.

LAMAR – Akeema Gardner will continue her basketball career in junior college.

The Lamar power forward signed with Denmark Tech Monday. She said it’s a good fit because, in some ways, it reminds her of home.

“It’s small like the high school,” she said. “So I know the classrooms are going to better for education-wise, and then working on basketball is one of my main goals.”

Gardner averaged 5.9 points and 6.8 rebounds per game as a senior.
