Women's Basketball schedule released

The 2007-2008 Davidson women's basketball schedule has been released on the team website. With non-conference games against the likes of Georgia, Virginia and Georgia Tech, Annette Watts' squad will hope to relive last year's success when the Wildcats made their first postseason appearance in school history.

Davidson will also participate in the Carolina First Classic in Asheville, NC in November and the St. Joe's Classic in December. In addition to a competitive non-conference schedule the Wildcats will have a full conference slate including games against perennial powers Western Carolina and Chattanooga. The conference scheduling committee didn't do the Wildcats any favors by scheduling both sets of games against the Mocs and Catamounts back-to-back.

Although the Wildcats will miss the contributions of graduated seniors Tia Washington, Jessica Mitchell and Brynn Kelly, they are very excited about a good freshman class that is coming in to add to an already talented young core of players. Katie Hamilton will be returning for her redshirt senior year after missing her junior season with an ACL tear. The Wildcats will be looking for Danielle Hemerka and Julia Paquette to control the interior while Kelly Gassie and Alex Thompson will take turns bringing the ball up the court.
