The news isn’t good for Spencer Dinwiddie and Colorado . . .

Terrible break for Colorado guard Spencer Dinwiddie, whose knee, injured Sunday in the loss at Washington, will require season-ending surgery. Here’s a complete rundown on the situation from B.G. Brooks at Cubuffs.com.

Dinwiddie is one of the Pac-12′s best players, a big guard who gets to the free throw line, and his absence from the UW game tells you all you need to know about his worth to his team. The Buffs went from having a slim lead at halftime to getting blown out by the Huskies.

It will be a challenge now for Colorado to make a third straight NCAA-tournament appearance under Tad Boyle, although history is littered with examples of teams that rallied to make up for the loss of a standout player.
