The 6-foot-3 senior forward practiced shooting from the foul line while bantering lightheartedly with Maryland women's basketball assistant coach Dave Adkins, who has been partly responsible for Hawkins'...

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.

For four years, Crystal Langhorne and Laura Harper were inseparable on the Maryland women's basketball team's front line, not to mention their time together on a Philadelphia-area Amateur Athletic Union team before that. The pair, integral pieces of the Terps' 2006 national championship effort, were sent to opposite coasts yesterday in the WNBA draft. Langhorne, Maryland's all-time leading scorer and rebounder, was taken sixth overall by the Washington Mystics. Harper, the Terps' career leader in blocked shots, went four picks later to the Sacramento Monarchs.

Semeka Randall, G, Tennessee: No player in the nation has more to prove this season than Randall, who had a subpar junior year. Ruth Riley, C, Notre Dame: If she can stay out of foul trouble, Riley could be the first American player taken in the WNBA draft. Marie Ferdinand, G, LSU: Might be the fastest guard in the college game, and a virtual lock to go high in the draft. Shea Ralph, G, Connecticut: Do-it-all player needs to get selfish to prove WNBA viability. Georgia Schweitzer, G, Duke: Last year's surprise ACC Player of the Year won't catch anyone off guard this year.

The plan was for Laura Harper and Crystal Langhorne to lead Maryland into Tampa, Fla., this week for the Final Four and to lead the Terps to a second national title in three years before heading to the WNBA. Stanford's win in the Spokane Regional last week interrupted part of that plan, but Harper and Langhorne still made it to central Florida, where the WNBA draft will take place today at 1 p.m. Neither of frontcourt player is expected to wait long to be taken. Langhorne, Maryland's all-time leading scorer and rebounder, and Harper, the Terps' leader in blocked shots, are widely considered to be first-round picks and were among 20 collegians invited to Tampa for the draft.

WASHINGTON -- It's par for the course for a player in a new city to check off a list of appealing things about the new place, and Tennessee's Chamique Holdsclaw, the first player chosen in yesterday's WNBA draft, held up her end of the bargain.Holdsclaw, the selection of the Washington Mystics, tossed a bouquet about the enthusiasm of Mystics fans and of teammate Nikki McCray, a former Lady Volunteer. Then the 6-foot-2 guard/forward threw in a line to warm the heart of owner Abe Pollin, who was sitting in the arena he built here.
