MaxPreps: Diener saw Brandon Jennings show coming
Tom Diener (yep, Travis Diener's uncle), a legend in the high school coaching ranks in Wisconsin , after watching Jennings in the McDonald's All-American Game in Milwaukee in 2008...

"He’s Allen Iverson with a great attitude," he said that week.

I remember thinking at the time that Diener, who led Vincent High School to five Wisconsin state titles, was full of cheese. But watching Jennings slice through the Warriors like a slab of Swiss, I realized I didn’t know jack. Jennings showed the confidence, poise and savvy of an NBA veteran — just like Diener projected.

"No, really," he told me 18 months ago. "He’s probably the best guard I’ve seen at this level."
