Notre Dame sophomore Skylar Diggins is one of 11 semifinalists for the Nancy Lieberman Award, given to the nation's top point guard, award's organizer – the Rotary Club of Detroit – announced.
Diggins is the first Notre Dame player to be chosen as a Nancy Lieberman Award semifinalist since All-American Megan Duffy in 2006, and the third since the award's inception in 2001 (when another Notre Dame All-American and current Irish assistant coach Niele Ivey was a finalist).
Three finalists, and this year's award recipient, will be announced the weekend of the NCAA Women's Final Four (April 3-5), with the recipient to attend an awards luncheon April 27 at the Detroit Athletic Club.
Diggins is averaging a career-high 14.1 points, 4.6 assists, 4 rebounds and 1.9 steals this season.
