The Niagara women's basketball program has offered a scholarship to one of the area's top young players.
St. Mary's of Lancaster guard Shay Ciezki, who was named to the All-Western New York team as a freshman, announced on Twitter that the Purple Eagles were her first offer.

She averaged 22.9 points, seven rebounds, six assists and six steals last season. The 5-6 Ciezki set the school single-season records for assists (138) and steals (128), helping the Lancers reach the Monsignor Martin Class AA final.
In addition to creating opportunities for others, she compiled 529 points, second-most in a season in program history. She scored 31 points twice and scored 20 or more points in 14 games.
With Ciezki serving as floor general, St. Mary’s averaged 73 points per game. She also led the Lancers in deflections as they loved to score in transition.
