Career highlights and awards

Jon Keith Diebler (born June 22, 1988) is an American professional basketball player who currently plays for Pınar Karşıyaka of the Turkish Basketball League. He played four seasons at Ohio State University. He holds the Ohio high school career scoring record and the Ohio State University and Big Ten career three-point field goals records. He also tied Chris Hill for the Big Ten single-game three-point record.

High school career[edit]

Diebler played his freshman season at Fostoria High School before his father, Keith, accepted a head coaching position at Upper Sandusky High School, which Jon attended for his remaining three seasons.[1]

He scored 77 points in a 105-100 win over Tiffin Columbian as a junior. In his sophomore year, the Upper Sandusky Rams won the state championship, coached by his father. As a senior he averaged 41.2 points, 12.3 rebounds, and six assists per game. Diebler ended his high school career with 3,208 points, more than Ohio high school greats Jay Burson (2,958), Luke Kennard (2,652), LeBron James (2,646), Bob Huggins (2,438), Jerry Lucas (2,438), Jamar Butler (2,412) and Jim Jackson (2,328).[2]

He won Mr. Basketball his senior year and lead his team on a trip to the state championship. Despite having his nose broken in three places on a layup attempt in the final quarter of the Division II Regional Championship game, he helped the team reach the state finals game while scoring 48 points in a three-point loss to Dayton Dunbar. It was the third-highest scoring effort ever in an OHSAA state championship game.

Considered a four-star recruit by Rivals.com, Diebler was listed as the No. 14 shooting guard and the No. 60 player in the nation in 2007.[3]

College career[edit]

On March 13, 2010, Diebler surpassed Jamar Butler for the Ohio State record for three-point field goals made.[4] Diebler finished the 2009–10 season averaging 37.2 minutes per game. On March 1, 2011, he made 10 three-pointers in a row while finishing 10 for 12, breaking the Ohio State record for most three-pointers in a game. On March 6, 2011, during Ohio State's senior day, Diebler made 7 three-pointers, finishing with 27 points against Wisconsin.[5]

Diebler started 115 games during his time at OSU, including every game since the start of his sophomore year.[6]

Professional career[edit]

On June 6, 2011, Diebler traveled to Portland to participate in a pre-draft workout[7] with the Trail Blazers. Diebler was drafted in the second round of the 2011 NBA Draft by the Trail Blazers.

In August 2011, he signed a one-year contract with the Panionios.[8][9] On July 20, 2012, Diebler's draft rights were traded to the Houston Rockets in a three team deal.[10] In the summer of 2012, he signed a contract with the Pınar Karşıyaka of the Turkish Basketball League.[11]
