    not bad at all. Especially when you are looking at two more top 150 in the 12 class already.

    TZiskin (huge hoops fan on Rivals who does the Facebook fan group for Men's Hoops) just linked this via twitter:

    Boys' basketball: The rise of Spencer Dinwiddie

    April 24, 2011
    UCLA and USC fans are going to be asking the question, "How did he get away?" And I'm referring to Spencer Dinwiddie of Woodland Hills Taft.

    Dinwiddie is a point guard who signed with Colorado, and he showed Saturday night at the Battle of the Valley just how good he has become. The City Section player of the year scored 27 points in the second half and finished with 32 points. He rarely shoots during games because he focuses on being a passer. But his team needed him to score, and Dinwiddie did just that.

    Considering that UCLA has been on a year-long search for a point guard and waited too long to offer Dinwiddie, next season will be a tough one when he comes to town. He has grown to 6 feet 4 and is still getting better.

    Didn't this happen before, a player named Derrick Williams?

    Great to hear. ESPN actually downgraded Cain to a 2-star player based on his performnce this season so it's interesting that Rivals would uprgarde him to their top 150. I guess everyone has a different opinion.

    I am really into this growing two inches as soon as Colorado recruits you. He was originally listed as 6'2, nice to see him become an oversized point. Will hopefully allow him to be much better defensively.

    ESPN is insane. Cali High and Rivals both upgraded him based on this season. How could anyone find fault with 14.4 ppg, 10.9 rpg, 3.4 bpg and even 2.7 apg while leading an LA team to a 29-5 record and top 25 ranking in the state? I think ESPN over-reacted to his height being a couple inches less than the 6'8" they had originally thought.

    This is awesome...Other than Arizona, who is gonna be the beast of the Pac 12, we are as good as anyone for the future.

    On a side note, how long before Ben Howland gets the axe at UCLA? Dude's not recruiting like UCLA should expect to recruit.

    I think the multiple Final Four runs bought him some breathing room, but he's got to be on the hot seat at this point. UCLA is one of the handful of programs that can reload in a single recruiting class with the talent necessary to challenge for a national title. No excuse for them being just pretty good 2 of the last 3 seasons with a losing record sandwiched in there.

    That said, I think they win the Pac-12 in 2011-12 and make a deep tourney run.

    150 / 64 (tourney teams) = 2.34

    This is where we need to be. While commendable, it's nothing to get too excited about.

    When we start challenging for conference championships, we'll know we're on the verge.

    I will take 2 top 150 and one that has improved much more than those players (such as future star Andre Roberson) to make our team great and competitive in tourneys.
