There's an adage in basketball that never rang truer than it did here Monday night. Shooters shoot. And Streamwood senior Jessica Cerda is a shooter. Never mind the fact Cerda was 0 for her first 10 on 3-point attempts. When the game was on the line, the Chicago State recruit hit nothing but the bottom of the net. With the Sabres trailing Cary-Grove and less than 4 minutes to play, Cerda put the 0-for-10 behind her by burying the go-ahead 3-pointer, lifting the Sabres to a thrilling 45-44 win over the Trojans in the first semifinal of the Class 4A Rockford East sectional.
