We are down to just one Indiana team in NCAA Division I basketball tournament play, and I’ll be watching them today.
The Notre Dame Fighting Irish women’s team is worth everyone spending a couple of Easter Sunday hours rooting them on against Kansas.
Even if she weren’t surrounded by a number of talented players, Skylar Diggins would be worth the time spent all by herself. The South Bend native is the most exciting player in women’s college basketball.
Certainly some may claim that Baylor’s Brittney Griner would be her rival in that category. But Griner, to me, as talented as she is, can be singled out for her size. A woman playing the college game at 6-foot-8 is about the equivalent of a man playing in college at 7-foot-6.
Diggins gets her work done through skill, speed, determination and the willingness to work however hard she needs to in order to get a victory. I wish the Irish the best.
