Skylar Diggins became Notre Dame's first Associated Press women's first-team All-American in more than a decade Tuesday.
The junior guard was named to the first team along with Baylor's Brittney Griner, Stanford's Nnemkadi Ogwumike, Delaware's Elena Delle Donne and Maryland's Alyssa Thomas. Griner and Ogwumike were unanimous selections by the 40-member national media panel, which voted before the NCAA tournament.
"I'd love to be the floor general for that team," Diggins told the AP about playing with her fellow first-team selections. "I'd probably average 20 assists. I can tell you right now, we'd be undefeated, we'd win every game by double digits."
Diggins is the first Irish women's player to be named to the team since Ruth Riley earned the honor in 2000 and 2001. Diggins was a third-team selection last year and was an honorable mention as a freshman.
Diggins entered Tuesday night's NCAA tournament game against Maryland averaging a team-high 16.6 points and 5.7 assists.
Notre Dame guard Natalie Novosel, who averages 15.3 points, and forward Devereaux Peters, who averages 11.9 points, earned AP honor mention status.
