Maryland Fans . . . If you think all the Terps are done with playing for a while, you'd be wrong! Shay Doron is participating in the WNBA's rookie pre-draft camp taking place right now in Cleveland. She's one of 40 top players invited by the league to compete in the camp, which allows the invitees to showcase their game for the pro team coaches and general managers in a setting in which the players are going head-to-head against other pro-caliber players.
So now might just be a good time for the Turtle Nation to bookmark a new on-line favorite: www.WNBA.com. That way you can follow Shay's journey from college to the next level. For example, this past Wednesday, Shay was one of four players who participated in the WNBA's Draft Prospect Media Conference Call, and the transcript on the WNBA's website will let you know you what Shay had to say.
The actual WNBA rookie draft will take place next Wednesday, April 4th. You can watch the draft (live) on ESPN2 beginning at 1 PM. Or, even better, you could join some Mystics fans (many of whom are also Terps fans) at the ESPN Zone for their annual draft party. You can find out more about the Mystics' event on the Mystics' website (another favorite to bookmark!): www.wnba.com/mystics. (Of course, you can also get to the Mystics' website from the link posted to the right on this very page!)
Shay may be the first serious WNBA prospect that the Terrapins have produced in quite a few years . . . but, as every Terps fan knows . . . she'll hardly be the last! A few years from now, many teams throughout the WNBA may have fearsome Turtles on their rosters. So if you aren't already a fan of the WNBA, now seems like a great time to get into the game!
