Skylar Diggins — Face of Women's Basketball

Skylar Diggins is the Face of Women's Basketball

Skylar Diggins was a McDonald's "All-American" coming out of high school and rose to national prominence — becoming an "All-American" Women's NCAA Basketball Star for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. She is being touted as the 'New Face of Women's Basketball'

5' 9" and all that good stuff

Diggins is Notre Dame's "all-time" leading scorer w/ 1,726 career points — leading the university past their Big East rival and consummate powerhouse UConn Huskies in "back-to-back" seasons in the Final Four — only to lose in the National Championship Game.

She won the Big East Player of the Year in 2012 & 2013 — and is very popular in the social media world esp. after being spotted w/ Lil' Wayne; who was rockin' her #4 Notre Dame jersey.
