TULSA, Okla. — Skylar Diggins likes that WNBA teams may now dread a trip to Tulsa.

The star guard at Notre Dame and No. 3 pick in the draft was introduced by the Shock on Saturday, May 4.

She’ll join Candice Wiggins to create a speedy backcourt that can shoot the 3-pointer for the Shock.

Diggins is expected to make an immediate impact on a Tulsa team that finished 9-25 last season.

She says, “Our attitude is we can beat you. I don’t mind the underdog role at all.”

The do-everything guard averaged 17.1 points, 6.1 assists and 3.1 steals while helping the Irish reach the Final Four the past three seasons.

The Shock open training camp on Sunday. The WNBA’s 17th season begins on May 24.
