Jan. 20, 2005
COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) -- Crystal Langhorne had 16 points and 17 rebounds, and an injured Shay Doron sparked a late surge that carried No. 16 Maryland past Virginia 63-60 Thursday night.
Doron scored 21 points and Kalika France had 14 for the Terrapins (13-3, 3-2 Atlantic Coast Conference), now 9-0 at home for the first time since the 1991-92 season.
Doron came in averaging 35 points over her last three games, but played much of the night with a sore right shoulder. After scoring 10 points before halftime, Doron spent the opening 2½ minutes of the second half in the training room.
Her first shot upon returning was an air-ball, and the 5-foot-9 guard had to be helped to the bench with 10:29 left after being thrust into the first row of courtside seats on a foul by Granberry.
Doron returned five minutes later with the score tied at 45, and the Terrapins promptly used successive layups by Langhorne, France and Doron to go up by six with 4 minutes left.
Doron made the lead stand up, scoring 10 of Maryland's final 14 points. She finished 7-for-11 from the floor and had seven rebounds.
The 17 rebounds were a career high for Langhorne, a freshman playing in her 16th college game.
Virginia missed 21 of its first 27 shots but closed the first half with a 7-0 run to take a 27-26 lead. The Cavaliers shot 26 percent before the break and were outrebounded 30-20, but Maryland was hindered by 14 turnovers.
