Suspended Missouri guard Michael Dixon will not be returning to the Tigers. Already suspended, Dixon announced via statement that he would be transferring. The announcement came just hours after the St. Louis Post-Dispatch had posted a story regarding a second rape allegation aimed at Dixon.
According to Dixon’s statement:
“It’s been a challenging few months. And while I appreciate the support of many in the Mizzou community, including my coaches and teammates, it’s in the best interest of me, my family and the University of Missouri for me to finish my career elsewhere.”
Dixon was voted the Big 12′s Sixth Man of the Year last year as a junior.
