GREENSBORO, N.C. - Maryland freshmen basketball players Mike Jones and Shay Doron were selected Co-Rookie of the Week by the Atlantic Coast Conference. In Maryland' s 87-38 win over UMES, Jones scored a career-high and game-high 25 points on a 6-of-11 shooting, including a 2-for-3 performance from beyond the arc and an 11-for-12 night at the free throw line. Doron netted 23 of her career-high 32 points in the second half at Wake Forest, leading Maryland to a 75-58 win. She was 9-for-17 from the field en route to tying the freshman class school record for points in a game.

COLLEGE PARK -- Shay Doron traveled halfway around the world last night for two purposes: to be honored for her contributions to the Maryland women's basketball program and to cheer on her former teammates against Virginia. A banner with Doron's No. 22 was lowered from the Comcast Center rafters at halftime without a hitch, but Maryland's 86-80 win was far more difficult, even more than Doron's trip from Slovakia.

COLLEGE PARK -- Of all the head-shaking things Shay Doron did yesterday, the one that got her coach shaking her head the most was what she said. Doron, whose 26 points and stifling defense lifted the Maryland women's basketball team past Wisconsin-Green Bay, 65-55, in their first-round NCAA tournament game, said the Terps felt "kind of dead" late in the second half with the Fighting Phoenix nipping at their heels. Someone had to raise Maryland's energy, and, with Crystal Langhorne, the Atlantic Coast Conference Rookie of the Year, in foul trouble and hounded by Wisconsin-Green Bay's packed-in defense, Doron stepped up. "It was more on the defensive end, because I knew that's what it was going to come to, us winning or not, was defense.

Washington -- Shay Doron was on the verge of telling a reporter what the biggest challenge has been in her rookie year in the WNBA when a crisis erupted. Barbara Farris, Doron's New York Liberty teammate, found her flip-flop in Doron's bag in the locker room after the Liberty's game with the Washington Mystics on Friday night and, with her tongue firmly in her cheek, accused the former Maryland guard of trying to make off with her shoe. "You keep putting it in there," Doron said. "Really?"

Shay Doron had only a couple of days to make an impression at last weekend's WNBA pre-draft camp in Cleveland, but she apparently put them to good use. Doron, the second all-time leading scorer in Maryland women's basketball history, was chosen by the New York Liberty in the second round of the WNBA draft and stands a decent chance to land a spot on the roster of her hometown team. Doron, a 5-foot-9 guard and native of Israel who played at the famed Christ the King High School in New York, was taken 16th overall, the Liberty's third draft selection.

COLLEGE PARK -- Since adding point guard duties to her already filled plate, Shay Doron has struggled to find her scoring rhythm. But when the Maryland women's basketball team needed points last night against Miami, Doron delivered. The junior guard tied a season high with 26 points on 8-for-14 shooting, including 4-for-4 from three-point range, to propel the No. 6 Terps to an 88-77 victory before 3,080 at Comcast Center. Sophomore forward Laura Harper, making her first start since the second game of the season, scored a season-high 19 points, and sophomore center Crystal Langhorne and freshman forward Marissa Coleman each added 10 points and 12 rebounds as Maryland (20-2, 7-1 Atlantic Coast Conference)

COLLEGE PARK - Why did the coach bother? She must have known this was a losing proposition. These are only exhibition games, Maryland women's basketball coach Brenda Frese told freshman guards Shay Doron and Kalika France. These are gimme games. A chance to see how the uniforms fit, get the air balls out of the way, check out rotations and substitutions. This is a chance to build the lungs and legs - the start of a long journey. Relax. Ha! In case anyone missed it, the careers of Maryland's two newest collegiate stars commenced Saturday.

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.

COLLEGE PARK - Rude awakenings are expected for high school superstars such as Shay Doron and Kalika France when they get to college. When the Maryland's women's basketball team reported early last month, it was the physical conditioning program that held surprises for the pair of former Parade All-Americans. The 6 a.m. start time was no problem - that's about the time high school seniors often get up to get ready for class. Instead, the intensity delivered the jolt. "I was expecting a little jog, a little warm-up.

For Shay Doron, the fantasy became a hardened quest when she reached the cusp of high school. She was already a run-and-gun scorer for five youth and school teams, and it wasn't hard to imagine that with normal progress, she'd become one of the best female basketball players in Israel. She might even earn a scholarship to play college ball in the United States. Duke women@Maryland Tomorrow, 6 p.m., Comcast SportsNet

COLLEGE PARK -- At some point this afternoon, Maryland sophomore Kristi Toliver might receive the ultimate form of validation for her young career: getting booed at Cameron Indoor Stadium. Duke fans, while generally hostile to all opponents, save their best venom for opposing players who have damaged them, or those from North Carolina. Considering that Toliver made a three-pointer near the end of regulation of the national championship game last April to force overtime, in which the Terps eventually won, she might have become Public Enemy No. 1 in Durham, N.C. And Toliver is OK with that.

COLLEGE PARK -- Things never really did seem in sync for the Maryland women's basketball team in last night's Atlantic Coast Conference opener, from a botched jump ball to start the game, to 11 second-half turnovers and getting out-rebounded for the first time this season. Yet, as good teams are forced to do to stay good, the top-ranked Terps found a way to get past their own mess, slogging out an 80-61 win over North Carolina State.

BOSTON -- Protocol typically holds that when the University of Maryland's alma mater is played at the end of a game, the school's athletic teams are to stand and sing, or at least acknowledge the music. As the horn sounded and the Terps reveled in their 81-70 win over North Carolina in last night's NCAA women's basketball semifinal, protocol went out the window, as the young Maryland players eschewed the music and jumped and shouted and gesticulated, urging their fan section to join in their joy at TD Banknorth Garden.

COLLEGE PARK - Tying an NCAA record and setting two school records. Not bad for Maryland freshman Shay Doron's first collegiate game. Doron converted an NCAA- and Maryland-record 23 free throws on a Terrapin-record 27 attempts, totaling 25 points and helping the Terps hold off Coppin State, 79-64, last night at the Comcast Center. "I was just trying to get to the hole because my shots were not falling at all," said Doron, a Parade and McDonald's All-American at Christ the King High School in New York last season.

Don't tell Shay Doron that she is the face of the Maryland women's basketball team. Yes, the sophomore guard leads the Terps in scoring. Yes, she is the team's lone All-Atlantic Coast Conference first-team selection. And yes, she was named to the Kodak/Women's Basketball Coaches Association Region II All-America team this week. But if you're looking for Doron to push aside Testudo, Maryland's fuzzy mascot, think again. "I don't care about that," Doron said after practice on Thursday as the seventh-seeded Terps (21-9)

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- Overtime is closing time for the Maryland women's basketball team. Trailing by as many as 14 points midway through the second half against No. 1 North Carolina, the No. 6 Terps rallied to tie the game and scored eight of the first 10 points in overtime to hold on for a 98-95 upset of the Tar Heels last night at Carmichael Auditorium. "We kept telling ourselves in overtime, 'Hey, this is our time,'" said Maryland junior guard Shay Doron, who blocked a last-second three-point attempt.
