GETTING TO KNOW NIC
Nic or Shmirf
Favorite athlete to watch in another sport
Buster Posey from the San Francisco Giants
Favorite midnight snack
Favorite spot on campus
TV show I would most want to appear on and why
Jersey Shore so I could fist pump
During road trips, who is the best and worst roommate to have
BEST: Ellyce because you’ll never be late. WORST: Jasmine because she snores.
Best advice I have ever received
Life is what you make of it
Ten years from now I will be...
Favorite moment in a game
When Kristi had to be point
My biggest achievement on the court was
Making it to the WNIT Sweet 16
I am ashamed to admit this, but I really like...
to constantly organize things
Place I most want to visit
The greatest influence on my life
Reason I picked my jersey number
I’ve had it since 3rd grade
If I could trade places with another athlete it would be…
If I could have any superpower it would be…
to be invisible
I pull my eyelashes out
Never had one
Reason I came to Oregon
To be a Duck and play in the Pac-10
Best class I have taken in college
Best Oregon basketball memory
When coach Westhead started the system

“Who’s that Girl” by Eve and “SF Anthem”
Worst drill to run at practice
Favorite coach saying
We are a circus act
My ideal job after Oregon
Keep on playing basketball
