Tulsa Shock guard Skylar Diggins wrapped up a great career with the Fighting Irish earlier this spring. Following her graduation from the University Notre Dame on Sunday, her sports agency, Roc Nation Sports -- founded by Jay-Z -- rewarded her with a Mercedes Benz.

Diggins also posted pictures of the white Mercedes on her Instagram account. A note was left on the windshield that read, “Enjoy.” Diggins is one of the agency’s first clients along with New York Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano and New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz.

The former Notre Dame guard was drafted No. 3 overall in the 2013 WNBA Draft behind Brittney Griner (Phoenix Mercury) and Elena Delle-Donne (Chicago Sky). She has averaged 6.5 points and 2.0 assists per game through her first two preseason games in the WNBA.
