Mizzou guard considering Memphis

(Memphis) University of Memphis basketball fans will have to wait a little longer to see if they end up with one of the top transfers in the nation. Former Missouri guard Michael Dixon visited the Memphis campus on Tuesday, but won’t make a decision until he returns home to Kansas City on Wednesday night to talk with his family.

Dixon missed last season after being suspended from the Missouri team over rape allegations. Dixon denies the accusation and police in Columbia, Mo., didn’t find sufficient evidence to charge Dixon.

The 6’1″ senior has one year of eligibility left and will ask the NCAA to waive its transfer rule so he can play immediately.

As a junior two seasons ago, Dixon averaged 13 points and three assists for a 30-win Missouri team. Dixon was also named the Big 12’s Sixth Man of the Year and named to the league’s all-defensive team.
