Notre Dame junior guard Skylar Diggins (South Bend, Ind./Washington HS) has been chosen as the 2011-12 BIG EAST Conference Player of the Year, it was announced Friday during a press conference at the XL Center in Hartford, Conn., site of this year's BIG EAST Championship. Diggins was chosen for this year's award through a vote of the league's head coaches, who were not allowed to select their own players.

Diggins is the third Notre Dame player ever to be named the BIG EAST Player of the Year, following the path blazed in 2001 by consensus National Player of the Year Ruth Riley and 2005 recipient Jacqueline Batteast. Diggins also is just the fifth player from a school other than Connecticut to be named BIG EAST Player of the Year in the past 19 seasons -- along with the Notre Dame trio, Rutgers' Cappie Pondexter received the award in 2005-06, followed one year later by Louisville's Angel McCoughtry.

On Thursday, Diggins also garnered unanimous first-team all-BIG EAST laurels for the second consecutive year following her second-team selection as a freshman in 2009-10.
