The Sky Digg Elite program has a number of talented players, but one in particular has earned the spotlight. Not surprisingly for the team named for Skylar Diggins, the club’s star is a tough, talented point guard. Daly Sullivan is a 5-8 point guard from the Class of 2017, and she enters the spring ranked as the No. 9 recruit in the class by the All Star Girls Report.
“Daly is a fiesty redhead who can really shoot the ball and handle the ball. She is a Sue Bird type of point guard,” said Coach Mo Scott, who is Diggins’ stepfather. “Daly is a scrappy competitor, and she is a great leader.”
Sullivan and her teammates will be competing in the 2014 Deep South Classic, which will be played in on April 25-27. Now in its 17th year, the Deep South Classic annually hosts many of the nation’s elite travel teams in a field that will eclipse 200 squads, and hundreds of collegiate coaches will be on hand searching for talent. The 2014 event will mark the second year that the Deep South Classic has been held at the Raleigh Convention Center. The venue was a tremendous success in its debut last year, with all games played at one site on 18 courts, and it is in a convenient central location.
In addition to Daly Sullivan, Sky Diggs Elite has a pair of highly-regarded perimeter players who are currently in middle school. Megan Urbanski is 2019 5-6 point guard, and Keegan Sullivan (Daly’s sister) is a 2020 5-10 shooting guard.
