W BBall Diggins vs UT Martin"I can't tell you how honored and grateful I am to have been chosen to be part of such an elite group," Diggins said. "My time at Notre Dame as a student-athlete was an experience I will never forget."

Skylar Diggins, a four-time All-America guard at Notre Dame who led the Fighting Irish to three consecutive NCAA Women's Final Fours from 2011-13, will be the latest person inducted into Notre Dame's Ring of Honor when the South Bend native is celebrated during a pregame ceremony Nov. 16 before the Fighting Irish take on Valparaiso at 2 p.m. (ET) inside Purcell Pavilion at the Joyce Center.

A banner honoring Diggins' number 4 will be raised to the rafters at Purcell Pavilion, where it will hang permanently. Diggins will be the second Fighting Irish women's basketball player added to Notre Dame's Ring of Honor following Ruth Riley's induction in 2010, and the fifth player overall, joining men's basketball players Austin Carr, Adrian Dantley and Luke Harangody in the prestigious circle.
