The Pac-12 reached the midpoint of the conference season and if the first half is any indication, the final five weeks of the regular season is going to be filled with surprises.

Colorado star point guard Spencer Dinwiddie suffered a season-ending knee injury during Sunday’s 71-54 loss to Washington at Alaska Airlines Arena, the Buffaloes announced Monday afternoon.
“It’s a big blow for him,” CU coach Tad Boyle said in a statement released by the school. “He’s worked so hard to put himself in the position he has and help lead this team to where we are today. To have that all taken away from you in one basketball play is . . . it’s tough.”
Dinwiddie, a 6-6 junior, will require surgery to repair an injured ACL in his left knee. After a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) exam, CU trainers determined he will miss the rest of the season.
No. 21 Colorado is 14-3 overall and 3-1 in the Pac-12.
Dinwiddie gives the impression of being in good spirits. How many people would post a selfie with their mom from the doctor’s waiting room?
In a series of posts on his Twitter account (below), he thanked fans, talked about being anxious to begin rehab and said he has faith in his CU teammatesMore

TUCSON, Ariz. – They were going to be stars for the Huskies.
At least that was the plan hashed out when Nigel Williams-Goss, Darin Johnson and Aaron Gordon visited Washington together on a recruiting trip last September.
Williams-Goss, the prototypical floor general, was going to zip passes to Johnson, the sweet-shooting wing, on the perimeter for three-pointers. And Williams-Goss was supposed to flip alley-oop lobs to Gordon, the crazy athletic forward, for highlight jams.
“That’s what you do on those trips,” Williams-Goss said. “You do kind of look into the future and say maybe we can do this or do that.
“But we all know we each have to make the best individual decision for ourselves.”More
