Three for Traynham

Eatvwnuuzbz2h7ey2gxj
UMass has emerged as a frontrunner for Lee, Maine point guard Daryl Traynham but Western Kentucky is still sticking around and Seton Hall is in his top three as the 5-foot-8 point guard begins his senior season.
No timetable on a decision has been set but that doesn't mean Traynham will wait around, either.
He would definitely like to visit UMass and Western Kentucky before making a decision but it looks like the Minutemen have taken a slight lead in his recruitment because their playing style is a good fit.
"The reason I like UMass and Western Kentucky so much is because I think the coaches let their point guards run the show," Traynham said. "Not do whatever they want to do but it's just my style the way both of those teams play.
"(UMass has) a lot of great wings this year. I like how they run and play hard, they play hard-nosed defense. I like the way they work."
No other schools are showing much interest in Traynham, rated as the No. 27 point guard and No. 110 prospect in the 2010 class by Rivals.com.
Traynham said before a decision is made he'd like to visit those two programs and possibly Seton Hall but wasn't sure when he'd be able to get free time during his season to make those trips. A decision could happen soon or after his season, at this point Traynham wasn't sure.
His speed, quickness and defensive mindset make him a valuable commodity and it appears UMass or Western Kentucky will land him in the end.
"I've been small all my life so I try to be the hardest worker on the court at all times," Traynham said. "I just try to be the toughest kid on the court, work the hardest and make the best decisions. If I do that I think I'll have a good game every game.
"I'm trying to get better in that area, lowering my turnovers. At my size, coaches don't want a 5-8 point guard out there just turning the ball over. I'm trying to get better in that area, too."
