Colorado's Spencer Dinwiddie already proved he could play with the big boys, helping Colorado knock off Wiggins and the Jayhawks earlier this year. He has played himself into the first-round conversation and against an Oregon team that can light up the scoreboard, his versatile game will need to be on full display. Much like San Diego State, Oregon doesn't feature top-flight prospects, but in a big game, a player like Dinwiddie must step to the fore. His athleticism is a question and it will be tested with the way Oregon gets up and down the court, scoring the ball.
