    Having watched Spencer Dinwiddie perform over the first 15 games of his career, I think it's high time to begin putting his performance in perspective.

    Dinwiddie is the fourth high profile freshman guard to matriculate through CU over the past decade.* Richard Roby, Cory Higgins, and Alec Burks all had outstanding freshman campaigns, which propelled them into the hearts and minds of Buff Nation.* Dinwiddie is following in their footsteps, and setting a similar tone for a stellar career in a CU uniform.

    But where does he stack up amongst the previous three?* By taking a look at the stats, I'll put Spencer's performance to-date in a little perspective, and give a thought or two about where his freshman performance ranks amongst the best of the past decade.

    After the break, I'll touch on each player's freshman year narrative, before discussing where I think Spencer belongs amongst their company. *I put together a handy spreadsheet of each player's numbers through their first 15 games.* You can check it out*here.

    Misleading thread title. Thought this was about GiA's latest efforts.


    RB, if I may make a suggestion, could you organize your blog by categories (i.e. bball, fball, etc...) as well as dates?

    If you click on the thread tags at the bottom of any post (like 'basketball,' 'beer,' or 'no, seriously, Dan Hawkins is ****ing awful at his job') you get linked to every post in that category. I'll see if Blogger has any other options to help the reader, tho.

    Gassaway included Dinwiddie in his National top-25 freshmen list.
