Notre Dame Women's Basketball | Nov. 16, 2013 | Notre Dame Athletics
Prior to Saturday's game against Valparaiso, the Notre Dame women's basketball program honored former star Skylar Diggins by inducting her into the school's Ring of Honor.
For the first few minutes, the sixth-ranked Irish played like they could have used the services of the former All-American, who graduated last Spring and now plays for the Tulsa Shock of the WNBA.
"No more emotional pregames," said Notre Dame coach Muffet McGraw, whose team did not score its first basket until 2:21 had elapsed. "We got off to such a slow start, I thought the emotion of the day was what the problem was."
From there, though, it was all Irish as they stomped the Crusaders 96-46.
