As number one Notre Dame faces number one UConn tonight in the latest version of the “Game of the Century” it is a pleasure to welcome back to the Dishin & Swishin podcast a player who left an indelible mark on the series between these schools, Dallas Wings guard Skylar Diggins.
Diggins left her mark with big shots and big wins, and continues to leave her mark both on and off the court to this day.
Off the court, in addition to her modeling career, representation of Nike, and authoring a book with her fiancé, Diggins is the national ambassador of the Allstate WBCA Good Works Team®. Student-athletes are nominated for the honor by their respective athletic departments, as they “have demonstrated extraordinary performance in the areas of service, academics and athletics.” Diggins is part of a panel that will narrow the 97 nominees to a group of ten that will be the Good Works team.
On the court, Diggins continues to work and re-gain confidence in her surgically repaired knee. It was a disappointing season for the Wings, their first in Dallas, as they failed to achieve the lofty heights of the year before, the organization’s first playoff spot since leaving Detroit. Diggins acknowledges she tried to come back a little too soon from the injury, and it was difficult “not feeling like herself” on the court.
She has high praise for the fans of the team though, and is looking forward to a healthy return this upcoming WNBA season.
