Very nice to see Cierra recognized for her great play and her hard work to get her game on track.

Putting her in the starting line up was yet another of Coach Warlick's (or whoever suggested it) very intelligent moves.

She's also the essence of a good teammate, as shown by her stopping to pull Andraya back to her feet in the backcourt while she (Cierra) was bringing up the ball, as well as extremely smart, as she then handed the ball off to Andraya to get it over halfcourt before the ten seconds were up. The LV's have had a number of players like that in the past, and you can never have too many of them.

Well deserved for one of the hardest working Lady Vols ever..I look for Cierra to become an excellent coach or TV analyst..

Way to go Cierra. Recognation well deserved. One of my favorites. They are actually all my favorites. LOL. But still-well spoken, polite, leader. It is amazing what having a little fun and a little confidence can do for you. This is one to watch in the future. Reminds me of Kara Lawson.

Yep, I am seeing more and more of the outstanding player and person Cierra always had the promise to become. She is the kind of versatile, unselfish player who makes everybody better. Wouldn't surprise me a bit if she were the team captain next year.
