Career highlights and awards

Spencer Dinwiddie (April 6, 1993) is an American professional basketball player who plays for the Brooklyn Nets of the National Basketball Association (NBA).

He was known as one of the elite high school basketball players in California when attending William Howard Taft High School.

High school career

Spencer Dinwiddie attended William Howard Taft High School (Woodland Hills, CA), where he made himself one of the better athletes in the nation after becoming the John R. Wooden California High School Player of the Year in 2011. He chose to play for the Colorado Buffaloes over other possibilities such as Harvard, Oregon, UCLA, and UNLV.

College career

Freshman

After becoming a part of Colorado's men's basketball program, Spencer Dinwiddie emerged as one of the top scorers on a very balanced team. Finishing the season averaging ten points per game, he was named to the Pac-12 All-Freshman Team along with Nick Johnson of Arizona, David Kravish of California, Chasson Randle of Stanford, and Tony Wroten of Washington.[1]

Sophomore

An even greater sophomore season would be waiting for Spencer Dinwiddie. This time, he could call himself the best player on the team, leading the Buffaloes in scoring, assisting, and free-throw percentage, everything a point guard is required to excel at. Finishing the season averaging 15.3 PPG and 3.0 APG, Dinwiddie was named to the All-Pac-12 First Team along with other big names such as Arizona's Solomon Hill and UCLA's Shabazz Muhammad.[2]

Dinwiddie hurts ACL, ending his 2013 season.

Junior

In 2013, the point guard's junior year, Dinwiddie fatefully suffered an ACL injury against the Washington Huskies that forced him to sit out for the rest of the college basketball season.[3] This unfortunately derailed Colorado's surprise early season run (14-2), ending the season with a 21-9 record, their only remaining game at the California Golden Bears.[4]

Professional career

Detroit Pistons (2014–2016)

Brooklyn Nets (2016–present)
