Diamond DeShields growing accustomed to the spotlight

North Carolina freshman Diamond DeShields has grown accustomed to the spotlight. She came to Carolina ranked as the nation's top incoming recruit, but despite all of that success on the court, basketball was never DeShields' first love. DeShields actually started by playing tennis, even training with Richard Williams, the coach and father of Venus and Serena. (WRAL Sports Fan)
