    Re: Diante Garrett

    Thanks for the resource! I especially liked the following from their Bradley Tech Game:

    "For those who did see the game, it was evident that Vincent guard Diante Garrett played like the Mr. Basketball candidate he is, taking over the scoring load in the second half. He finished with 26 points, including 19 after halftime...

    Garrett struggled to run the offense smoothly and forced things during the first half. But after a talking-to from Diener and assistant coach John Allen, Garrett got on the good foot. He started the second half by scoring 11 points in the third quarter, including eight of Vincent's 10 during one 5-minute stretch. He blew past defenders and when he wasn't finishing, he was getting to the free-throw line.


    "Coach told me to take over a little bit more," Garrett said. "I just did what I know I can do."


    Garrett also missed a dunk in the fourth quarter that would have posterized a Tech defender. The attempt produced some applause from the crowd and some disapproving words from Diener, who wanted to slow down the pace.Still, the coach praised his senior.


    "He is an amazing player," Diener said. "He is as good as there is at getting around players and finishing."

    Clip of Vincent's latest victory. Relevant game highlights begin at about the 11:30 mark of the stream. Garrett had some nice drives to the bucket in the second half. Seems to be a really good finisher around the rim.

    I'm not sure that any member of the class has qualified academically. I just don't know.

    Travis' dad is Robert Diener. Travis had a cousin, Drake, on the same basketball team that went to Depaul. I believe

    Re: Diante Garrett

    Thanks for the link, rd4isu. I like Diante's quickness with the ball and his ability to get in the lane and score. He's pretty skinny, though. He's probably going to have a tough time of it in the Bix XII until he puts some meat on his bones. But I think eventually, he's going to be a tremendous player.
