Freshman guard Skylar Diggins put on a show Tuesday in a 31-point performance that led Notre Dame to an 84-66 win over Vermont. Her career day also included seven steals.

Solid defense and a 52.5 percent shooting effort helped the Irish overcome an early 10-point deficit against the Catamounts. Emotions ran high as the comeback continued — the game was the last Notre Dame will play at the Purcell Pavilion this year and the players and crowd wanted to make it a good one.

Notre Dame now advance to the Sweet 16 in Kansas City, Mo, where it will take on No. 3-seed Oklahoma.
