Harper and Doron to Play Together in Turkey

Laura Harper (2004-08) and Shay Doron (2003-07)have both signed to play for Besiktas Cola Turka of Turkey for next season. Here are player pages for Harper and Doron.
Beşiktaş Cola Turka Women’s Basketball Team has added Israeli guard Shay Doron, American center Laura Harper and forward Alexis Hornbuckle to its roster.

She played an important role in the Maryland University’s NCAA title in 2006 and Elitzur Ramla’s first place league finish in 2008. Doron, who also plays for the Israeli national team, took part in the Euro Cup semifinals last year.

After winning the prestigious NCAA Championship in 2006, she was part of the team when the USA Under-23 Team grabbed the world title in 2007. She was selected as the most valuable player in NCAA Final-Four Tournament. She is currently with the Sacramento Monarchs of the WNBA and will join Beşiktaş Cola Turka once the WNBA season ends.

In addition to its league scheudle, Besiktas is scheduled to participate in the FIBA Women's Euro Cup tournament this winter. Two years ago, Rodney Elliott played for Besiktas's men's team.

Glad to see them landing on European rosters. At least they get to keep playing.
