Lightbourne, Gaither Tabbed Players of the Week

The Player of the Week Fan Vote for Girls Basketball Player of the Week tallied 6,669 votes, with Tallulah Falls’ Denika Lightbourne tallying 5,017 to win the Fan Vote. BLITZ then picked Jefferson’s Deshona Gaither as Co-POW.


Sophomore sensation Denika Lightbourne continues to impress early and often in her career at Tallulah Falls. The guard had 14 points, 5 steals, 4 rebounds, and 3 assists last week, and on the season is averaging 13 points, 5.6 rebounds, 3.9 assists, 3 steals, and 0.3 blocks per game for the #10-ranked Lady Indians. Lightbourne, who was an All-Region member as a freshman last year, is closing in already on 500 career points, needing just 34 to reach the mark in her sophomore season. This is her second career POW award.

  • Can I order a picture of Ellie Kinlaws framed photo? I didn’t see it on her week that you could buy it. If not, no big deal. Thank you!
