Fans Choice Player of the Week

Who: Madison Newby

School: Archer

Class: Sophomore

Position: Guard

Height: 5-foot-7

Highlights: Had 25 points, five assists and four steals in the Tigers' Peach State Basketball Holiday Invitational opener, had 15 points and five steals in the second game and added 18 points and eight assists in the tourney finale.

Coach Ryan Lesniak's take: "Madison does so much for us other than scoring the basketball. Most people only pay attention to the points column, but her ability during our tournament and through the last year and a half to feed her teammates the ball, pick up big steals and pull timely rebounds is what makes her really special. She fills up every column of the stat sheet each time she steps on the floor with her intensity on both ends of the floor. This past tournament was no different."
