This past weekend, the Notre Dame basketball family welcomed a new member into the prestigious Ring of Honor at Purcell Pavilion. Four-time All-America point guard Skylar Diggins (’13) returned to her hometown and was recognized in a pre-game ceremony before the Irish took the floor against Valparaiso.

A giant #4 Diggins banner was unveiled, joining #00 Ruth Riley (’01), #44 Luke Harangody (’10), #34 Austin Carr (’71) and #44 Adrian Dantley (’78) in the rafters.

In the latest edition of Irish Connection, Fighting Irish Digital Media goes behind the scenes of Skylar’s special day and reflects back on the outstanding career of one of South Bend’s own. Watch below.


This plaque now hangs in the Ring of Honor display in the Austin Carr Concourse at Purcell Pavilion.
