Former Terp Star Doron Paces Israeli National Team in Scoring at EuroBasket
June 10, 2009
Former University of Maryland star Shay Doron led her Israeli national team in scoring in its three-game showing at the EuroBasket Women's Tournament in Latvia this week, including a game-high 26 points in the opening contest versus Belarus.
The Israelis, however, dropped all three games and were eliminated after a narrow 73-70 loss to France on Tuesday.
Doron, Maryland's fifth all-time leading scorer, led all players with 26 points in Israel's opening game loss to Belarus, 81-76, on Sunday. She guided Israel to an eight-point halftime lead, but the team could not hold off Belarus after halftime.
Israel then fell to Italy in the second game of the tournament, 75-64, with Doron registering a team-best 14 points. In Israel's final game of the event, Doron scored 15 points versus France.
Doron was a three-time All-Atlantic Coast Conference selection during her Terrapin career from 2004-07 and was a starter on Maryland's 2006 national championship team.
