ACCOMPLISHMENTS 

One of only three seniors on the team, Nie-Nie ran the show in new coach Jim Stromberg's frenetic offense in the opening game against B Conference member St. Mary's. She had nine points — including a basket at the buzzer to end the first half that put her team on top for good — and gave the Saints fits while trying to guard her in the Cubs' 46-37 triumph. "It's great to have a quarterback who can beat the press," Stromberg said. "I haven't coached a kid like her since I had (Providence College standout) Keisha Blackwell at Seton Keough (in the late 1990s)."
