BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - University of Colorado junior point guard Spencer Dinwiddie is skipping his senior season and will declare for the NBA draft.
Dinwiddie said at a news conference in Boulder on Thursday that he believes he's a ''first-round talent'' and doesn't think there are many players in this year's deep draft that are more talented than he is.
Dinwiddie's junior season was cut short when he tore his left ACL Jan. 12 at Washington and needed reconstructive surgery. He said he expects to be back on the court by August.
Dinwiddie was averaging 14.7 points and nearly four assists when he got hurt. The Buffs were 14-2 and ranked 15th at the time. They finished 23-12 and lost to Pittsburgh in their NCAA tournament opener.
