    Per ESPN article here

    Perhaps he's under the radar to the ESPN crew, but not here at AB.

    Or in the Pac. He may be under the radar to the East Coast media, but not out West.

    I read as, 'who are the guys on this USA team that we haven't put on our radar yet?' I love watching all the pieces begin to feed off themselves.

    once you are written up in an "underrated" column you are no longer "underrated" IMO

    Draft Express has Dinwiddie way too low on its 2014 mock draft -#13 in the 2nd round. He's rated as a SG so look for that to change when he's re-rated as a PG (as noted in the OP from ESPN).

    Is he underrated? I've been hearing things like "best guard in the Pac-12" "best back court in the Pac-12" and frankly I'm not sure I buy that just yet.

    They will still be calling him underrated next year when we are in the sweet 16.

    I can say I believe Ski is consistently overrated nationally. He just hasn't shown enough consistency for me to believe that he forms one half of the best guard duo in the conference. That said, I also believe he has the potential to make me look stupid here.

    Ski has proven that he is an extremely effective guard in driving the basket and even in ball distribution. If you go back and watch games from last year you will see it. Yes he did go cold in shooting for most of the year, but he showed ability in managing the game in a variety of other ways. If he gets his shot back we will absolutely have the best guards in the PAC.

    Look at his steal and assist to Johnson starting at 0:50 in this video.

    I agree that much of the props he deservedly got his freshman year wore off last year. It was just painful for much of the season with the 2/14 and 5 turnover type game that occurred far too frequently. I do have a hunch he'll be back in form next year for a variety of reasons, but that remains to be proven. Part of Ski's national recognition is due to his knack for showing up in the NCAA Tournament even if in the case of last season there were about 20 other somewhat painful to extremely woeful performances. It's just that those occurred at 1 am on the east coast on a Thursday night in Pullman when no one east of Colorado (except me) was watching.

    Today I learned "Under the Radar" means "doesn't play in the ACC or the Big East"
