Travis Diener

I gave this guy a lot of crap every time he and the Golden Showers came to Halton. But his college career ending on a non contact drill is sad. Won’t even get to play senior day. That sucks.

Good luck on the next level, Travis.

O-V-E-R-R-A-T-E-D…he’s the 2nd best Diener we played this year!

Leading his team in points and assists, lost by 50 to UL when he didn’t play, losing by 16 at half to Cincy. Yeah, wayyyy to much hype for him.

Best PG in CUSA and one of the best in the country.

The guy has been injury plagued all year, which is good for us but a shame. The kid had all the heart in the world and if you think Drake is better, you’re crazy. Travis would run his cousin out of the gym, he’s a better shooter, passer, ball-handler and leader.

I love Mitch and wouldn’t give him up, but he’s not in Diener’s league. The closest one in conference is Dean.

Travis is better than Drake in every possible category. The kid is clutch and the only reason Marquette won this year. I liked to dislike him but agree with MNH - hate to see his college career end like this. Classy player, always seemed to play hurt, always doing what his team needed.

I definately agree. Diener had a great career. As a sophmore he was key in their run to the Final Four. Wade was the one who beat Kentucky, but Diener was the the key in their first three wins.

Besides, anyone who can get get squashed like a bug by Clemmons and live to tell about it is one tough dude.

And that is a very distant second. Dean is another gunner forced into playing point. If Dean and Diener were traded before the season, UL would be undefeated, averaging over 100 points a game, and Vitale would be SportsCenter every night for ten minutes talking about PItino's genius.

I think you would be singing a different tune if he was in Niner Green. Tough kid good player too bad it had to end this way for him.

Diener won’t make it in the NBA -> in four years on major D-1 hoops, he has not developed the physical body to survive in the NBA.

Do look for him in Europe.

If Mark Price can play in the NBA, so can Diener.

That NBADraft.net site has Diener as a late 2nd round pick.
