CLEVELAND, MS - The North Georgia Women’s Basketball team will open the 2008-09 season this weekend in Cleveland, Mississippi, as they take on Southern Arkansas and Delta State University in the 2008 Margaret Wade Classic.

The Lady Saints enter the 2008-09 season with high expectations after breaking on to the scene last year with their first-ever Peach Belt Conference Tournament victory.

Last season, the Lady Saints posted a mark of 11-2 at home on their way to being ranked for two straight weeks in the USA Today/ESPN Top 25. Head Coach Buffie Burson returns for her 15th season, where she has accumulating a record of 324-124.

The Lady Saints return All-American Syretha Marble who looks to continue her dominance in the Peach Belt Conference. In 2007-08, Marble led the PBC in points as she averaged a double-double for the season.

The coaching staff will rely on guards Lindsey Kitchens and Brooke Baker to lead a young group of players into the always-tough Peach Belt Conference.
