By Robert Hydrick - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Darton College Lady Cavaliers start their season Wednesday.

Darton women will host Faulkner Community College.

Head coach Laura Blackwell and the Lady Cavs ready to take this season a game farther than last when Darton lost in the region championship game.

The Lady Cavs have been able to win games relying mainly on outside shooting.

Coach Blackwell is excited about this year finally having some legitimate post players like former Monroe star Dominque Gilbert.

The coach believes that inside threat will give her three point aces better looks at the basket.

Laura Blackwell said. "We love to go inside and have our shooters outside. In the past years our shooters have carried us outside. So, we are looking for that rebounding edge and big girl inside."

Darton will tip with Faulkner at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday at Cavalier Arena.

Darton will host the Cavalier Classic Friday and Saturday with Southern Union, Tallahassee Community College and Southern Union.

Darton plays 7:30 p.m. Friday against Southern Union and again at 2:00 p.m. Saturday against Tallahassee.
