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.
