January 10, 2004|By FROM STAFF REPORTS

Freshman Shay Doron sparked Maryland's offense in the second half, scoring 23 of her career-high 32 points to lead the Maryland women's basketball team past Wake Forest, 75-58 at Joel Coliseum in Winston-Salem, N.C. yesterday.

Doron's 32-point effort was the most by a Maryland freshman and is the seventh-highest point total in school history.

The Terps (11-3, 3-0) blew open the game in the second half after the teams were tied at 28 at halftime. The Terps, who improved to 3-0 in the Atlantic Coast Conference for the first time since the 1991-92 season, outscored Wake Forest, 47-30, after halftime. The 47 points were the most surrendered by Wake Forest (8-7, 1-3 ACC) in any half this season.

Doron finished the game 9-for-17 from the field, 3-for-7 for three-pointers and 11-for-12 from the free-throw line.

Fellow freshman Kalika France was the only other Maryland player in double figures. France scored 15 points, grabbed eight rebounds and added three assists.
