Shay Doron Wins Israeli Championship and MVP

Back in May, former Terp Shay Doron (2003-07), who was a leader on the Terrapin women's basketball championship team in 2007, won another championship: this time, her pro team, Elizur Ramla, won the Israeli championship. I found this thanks to DC BasketCases, which also notes that Doron was cut by the WNBA's New York Liberty, so she will not be playing back in the U.S. this summer.

After her team won the Isreali Championship, Israeli Cup, and advancing to the semi-finals of the Women's Eurocup, Shay was named Player of the Year by the league's coaches.

Shay actually asked to leave NY. She chose between riding a bench for 4 months, or training with her national team and having a well earned break from basketball ... she chose the latter. Hardly blame her, id want to leave too, if I were playing for Pat Coyle.
