Diggins says farewell to ND at Women's Basketball Banquet

Posted:

After last week's WNBA draft, South Bend can now call itself "Home of WNBA Superstar Skylar Diggins"

Tuesday, Diggins returned home for the end of the season Notre Dame women's basketball award banquet.

It was a very special night over at the Joyce Center for a rather emotional Skylar Diggins. Over 1000 fans were there to say one last goodbye to say South Bend's own and take pictures and get autographs from the future WNBA star.

When Diggins's moment came to give her farewell speech, it was those same fans that she thanked for being there to watch her grow into Notre Dame's all-time leading scorer.

"Thank you Notre Dame fans, who are the best fans in the land," said Diggins. "These last four years are something I'll never forget. They're something that will stick with me. It's just so special to share these moments with guys. Thank you so much for that. I love you and Go Irish!"

Diggins first game with the Tulsa Shock will be Thurs. May 9th.
