After earning the University of Maryland's first-ever national title in women's basketball in 2006, Israeli-born Shay Doron and the Terrapins are all set to defend that championship. Maryland is scheduled to begin its postseason against either Georgia Tech or Miami in the second round of the ACC tournament on Friday. Georgia Tech faced Miami in a first-round game in Greensboro, North Carolina, on Thursday. The Terrapins finished the season with a 26-4 record, and are ranked sixth in the nation. Despite such a high ranking, the ACC tournament will be an important test. Fellow ACC teams Duke and North Carolina both finished ahead of Maryland in the conference, with North Carolina ranked No. 4 in the AP national poll and undefeated Duke a nearly-unanimous selection as the top team in the nation. After becoming only the second player in school history to be named All-ACC three consecutive years, Doron entered the 2006/07 season with high expectations. She ended the regular season with per-game averages of 11.5 points, 4.1 rebounds, 2.7 assists, and a team-high 1.5 steals. Though she failed to make the All-ACC team for the first time in her collegiate career, Doron was named one of 11 national finalists for the Lowe's Senior CLASS Award, which honors college seniors for remaining in school. The ACC tournament runs until Sunday, while the NCAA tournament selection will be on March 12 and first-round games scheduled for March 17-18.
