It was a major bummer because she's a very impressive athlete. Here are the things that he should have mentioned:

1. She played for Notre Dame where she holds career records for points, steals, free throws made, free throws attempted, games started, minutes played, double-figure scoring games and triple-doubles.


3. She was named the Most Outstanding Player of the 2011 NCAA Dayton Regional.

In the regional final, they beat Tennessee (fourth-ranked team in the country) by a score of 73-59. Diggins scored a then-season-high 24 points in the game.

5. During both her sophomore and senior year she was a finalist for the Nancy Lieberman Award and the John R. Wooden Award.
