Dannielle Diamant, Northwestern
Unlike other incoming Northwestern freshman student-athletes, Dannielle Diamant did not spend her summer on campus taking courses. Instead, in July, the 6-4 forward represented the United States in the Maccabiah Games in Israel. Her team won five games, defeating Great Britain, Australia, Canada and Israel (twice) en route to the gold medal. Diamant, a consistent starter for the 'Cats, is the granddaughter of legendary UNLV coach Jerry Tarkanian.
