Dylan Talley has gone through unspeakable tragedy over the last few weeks.

The former Husker men’s basketball player has lost his grandmother, 3-month-old niece, brother and mother in the last seven weeks. This has prompted his former coach, DePaul assistant Marc Hsu, to create a GoFundMe page to support Talley.

“Dylan was born and raised in Camden, N.J.,  and has overcome all odds and has matured more than any player I’ve ever coached,” Hsu writes in the description of the GoFundMe page. “He is truly deserving.”

Hsu coached Talley at Binghamton University for one year.

Several members of the Huskers and college basketball community have posted in show of support for Tally during this time of tragedy, including his former coach Doc Sadler, who is currently an assistant under Fred Hoiberg.

Talley was an honorable mention All-Big Ten performer for the Huskers during his senior season in 2012-13. He averaged 13.7 points a game that year, good enough for 10th in the conference.

Tally currently plays professionally overseas in the country of Georgia.

As of early Monday evening, the GoFundMe page has generated almost $15,000 to help Tally pay for funeral expenses, with a goal of raising $25,000. If you would like to help just click here.
