    Delino DeShields' little sister, Diamond, is one of the nation's top women's basketball players for the Tennessee Lady Vols, and she showed it on Wednesday night by dropping 30 points in a blowout win over Stetson.

    But even that couldn't top her Christmas gift from her brother.

    Diamond let it slip in the postgame press conference that she was the recipient of a brand-spankin' new white Mercedes, courtesy of her brother, who finished his rookie season with the Rangers as the team's Rookie of the Year and finished seventh in the balloting for AL Rookie of the Year.

    "I think he just loves me," she told reporters, via the Knoxville News Sentinel. "I was very happy."

    Must be nice to have a big-league budding star for a brother.

    What did your brother get you for Christmas? Oh yeah? Diamond DeShields isn't impressed.
