Darton hoops getting ready for Henry's first season

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - New Darton coach Lea Henry understands it is going to take time for her team to learn her system of basketball.

Henry says the one area that she doesn't have to worry about is the attitude of her players.


The Darton basketball team continuing their preseason work with their season opener in two weeks.

The six returning players and seven new members to the Darton roster are answering the challenge in learning a new offensive and defensive schemes.

Coach Henry is very pleased her Darton squad won all three scrimmage games at a jamboree in Columbus over the weekend.

Preseason wins don't count in the standings but coach Henry says they are the result of the effort her players are giving during practice.


Lea Henry said. "From day one we really emphasized that we didn't want to coach effort or attitude. We haven't had to do that. We just had to coach our system and talk a lot about fundamentals."

Darton opens the season at home November 1st against Middle Georgia Tech.
