Send to KindlePerhaps lost in the midst of the United States World University Games team’s 91-51 thrashing of Norway on Sunday was the continued strong play of Colorado’s Spencer Dinwiddie.   Dinwiddie scored nine points and again recorded eight assists, his third time reaching the eight assist mark in six tournament games.  The 6-foot-6 guard led the Buffs in scoring last year (15.3ppg) and took home 1st team All-Conference hardware, but what truly separates him is that unselfishness and vision. (Courtesy: Colorado Sports Information) Yesterday’s eight helpers increased Dinwiddie’s six game total to 35.  Remarkably, he’s only committed nine turnovers the entire tournament; nearly a 4-to-1 ratio.   His assist total leads the team, topping the 31 handed out by Indiana’s table-setter Yogi Ferrell. “Spencer has a great feel the game,” former USC Head Coach Bob Cantu told College Chalktalk.  “His length gives him a huge advantage,  He’s very good in the open court and can make plays out of the screen and roll.  He has improved so much since high school.  He has a very bright future!” Dinwiddie is making the most of his opportunity with Team USA on both ends of the floor.  In addition to his assist work, he’s averaging 8.3 points per contest and leading the team in steals, with 10 through the half dozen games. The U.S. faces another 4-2 team in Germany today at 10 a.m.   Related Posts:Indiana’s Ferrell, VCU’s Treveon Graham lead US…Pac-12 regained swaggerPAC-12 Notebook: Washington Huskies in TransitionPAC-12 Notebook: Five Teams with Real Title HopesMountain West power shift
