ESPN Player Evaluations

Nike Skills June 08: Skylar Diggins is a consummate pro. Her work ethic speaks for itself and she plays every single possession like it's her last. There are players here quicker, stronger, faster and taller, but none of them are as complete a player nor as effective as Diggins. She is a smart player and in this setting uses her body position and initiates contact to outplay quicker defenders. Defensively she is always a threat because she stays focused. There were several possessions she slapped the ball away from her opposition when they relaxed. Diggins is a playmaker, hard worker and a real gamer amongst gamers.

Summer 07: Diggins is a terrific young player who plays like a much more experienced player. She is one of the most savvy players on the court regardless of the competition and she is an incredible competitor to boot. She can really fill it up on defense and her being left handed really gives defenses fits. The thing is she can go with either hand and can stop and pop on a dime. Her pull-up jumper is money. She can shoot the three as well and has range a few feet behind the arc. She is a good defender but not great at this point. She is good in the passing lanes, uses good footwork most of the time and can stay in front of most guards. The big question is if she's a point guard or a small scoring guard. If she can prove she can play the point against top competition she will be an incredible and versatile player.
