Less than a year after recording the program’s first triple-double since 1990, Skylar Diggins tallied the second of her career in Notre Dame’s 84-56 win at DePaul.

With her 22-point, 10-rebound, and 11-assist performance against Maryland in last season’s NCAA Regional Final, Diggins joined Mary Gavin and Sara Liebscher as the third Notre Dame player to accomplish the feat.

On Sunday, Diggins played 32 minutes, and finished the game with 17 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists.

Liebscher’s triple-double – a 17-point, 12-rebound, 10-assist effort – came on Feb. 15, 1990 versus Detroit.

On Jan. 31, 1987 against Marquette, Gavin registered a triple-double (the first in program history), unconventionally, when she scored 11 points, dished out 14 assists and grabbed 10 steals.
