Travis Diener Out For Season

Mike DeCourcy gets the story first......."Diener's senior season ended when he broke two fingers on his left hand in a freak accident during a routine, non-contact drill early in Tuesday's practice."

What. A. Damn. Shame. This was no way to end a remarkable collegiate career. This guy embodied the the excellence and heritage of this program as few were able to do.

Travis was a stunning player for Tom Crean's Wariors, a remarkable competitor who embodied all you could expect from a collegiate athlete. Here's to a speedy recovery, Travis. And thanks for the thrills during your run at MU!

Dodds on Sports' MarquetteHoops site has a terrific recap of Diener's career and the press conference here.

Here's the updated article from Rosiak at the Journal-Sentinel.
