Thanks for the memories
We enjoyed Skylar Diggins' career at Notre Dame almost as much as she did. Diggins didn't win a national championship, but she accomplished nearly everything else in her stellar career, including helping her Irish turn around their rivalry against UConn.
Diggins struggled in a 3-for-15 night as Breanna Stewart scored 29 points and UConn snapped its skid against the Irish with an 83-65 win in the Final Four.
Diggins embraces Geno Auriemma, head coach of the Connecticut Huskies, following the loss. ''Don't let this define my career,'' she said he told her, and that ''I've done more for women's basketball than some people have done who have won four championships.'' ''He just told me I was a good player,'' she said. ''You respect that coming from such a good coach.''
Even while struggling against UConn in the semifinals, Diggins kept her teammates together.
Love that smile
We got used to seeing her sweet smile, as she and the Irish usually came out on top.
