PHOENIX, Sept. 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Shamrock Farms Rockin' Refuel® announced today that women's basketball all-star, Skylar Diggins, is the newest member of Team Rockin' Refuel – an elite group of sports and entertainment personalities who rely on the protein milk beverage to get the proper nutrition they need to perform their best.
