Buzz That Was: Dig This

Skylar Diggins won't sit out of the annual March spotlight, but this year she'll be in a magazine rather than on a court.

In case you were busy picking out baby names for Kelso and Jackie and missed out on sports, we've got you covered. Here's everything you missed last night.

Sky high

In between tweeting about headbands and Notre Dame's 84-67 win over Arizona State in the second round of the NCAA tournament, former Irish standout Skylar Diggins casually dropped a rather major announcement that likely caught the envy of 99 percent of Hollywood. The Tulsa Shock star is featured in the latest issue of Vogue. You know, NBD. And unlike the issue's cover models, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, she didn't even have to spend the last year publicly campaigning for it!

Diggins then went on to complain on Twitter about the calls going against Notre Dame, and Vogue went on to talk about incorporating bright blue eye shadow into your daily life. And somewhere out there, Kris Jenner is mumbling to herself about her daughter having to share space with Diggins.

And just in case you've already forgotten what the Kimye cover looks like and need a refresher before picking up your copy at the local newsstand, please let James Franco and Seth Rogen remind you.

Better than fiction

What happens when you combine Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan, Nick Kroll and Topanga from "Boy Meets World"? ALL MY DREAMS, OBVIOUSLY. The unlikely foursome, alongside some other notable actors whom I won't bother to note, stopped by the Upright Citizens Brigade in Los Angeles and did a live read of the "Space Jam" script. For your consideration, Hollywood foreign press.

Since when?

Another day, another loss for the Philadelphia 76ers. On Monday, the San Antonio Spurs handed the team its 25th loss in a row in a 113-91 rout. And here I thought the 76ers would stop the tanking mission after the lackluster showings of Andrew Wiggins and Jabari Parker at the NCAA tournament. What has happened in the sports world since the Sixers won a game? Take it away, "SportsCenter"!

But cheer up Philly fans, somehow your team still has a better record than the Milwaukee Bucks. Seriously.

Dance card

On Monday night, endurance swimmer Diana Nyad and former hockey agitator Sean Avery were eliminated from "Dancing with the Stars." If you're sad about this, you probably should have picked up the phone and voted for them. Nyad, for her part, handled her early exit with grace and dignity as she thanked her partner and the show on social media and in subsequent interviews.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, Avery was not as gracious in defeat. He hinted of a conspiracy theory on Twitter immediately after the show. Because, of course. That MUST be it.

He shared his theory on Tuesday's "Good Morning America," blaming an argument with a show producer for the Week 1 dismissal. His partner Karina Smirnoff's facial reaction pretty much says it all.

New heights

Johnny Manziel is pretty good at this whole sports thing. If his entire Texas A&M career isn't enough proof for you, please examine Exhibit Y below.

While we don't have a tape measure handy to measure the height of the rim, clearly, hanging out with LeBron James has been paying off.

Kobe knows best

According to a new piece in the New Yorker, Kobe Bryant and a business associate have a running bet on the staying power of Katy Perry and Justin Bieber. Bryant, once a teenage star himself, is firmly #TeamKaty (because who doesn't like "Dark Horse"?) and thinks Bieber's career is headed for implosion. To recap: Kobe Bryant is just like everyone else on the planet. And after watching the Lakers this season, I think it's safe to say that Kobe Bryant is an expert on implosions.

Drew 'Noah' Brees

Drew Brees and his wife, Brittany, went to an advance screening of "Noah" last week dressed in costume and definitely didn't get any strange looks from fellow movie goers or anything.

I don't know about you, but I think it's the aluminum foil ax that really sells this ensemble.
