Michael Dixon Suspended Indefinitely

Posted by CoHoops DeAnte Mitchell
The Missouri Tigers (8-1) starting point guard Michael Dixon has been suspended indefinitely for violation of team rules.

Head Coach Mike Anderson didn't disclose the violation, but his sophomore guard will miss the first game of his career.

Dixon averages 10.7 points, 4.3 assist, 2.4 steals, and 2.2 rebounds.

Freshman Phil Pressey will most likely step up and fill the shoes of the 6-foot-1 guard.

The Tigers face the Oral Roberts Golden Eagles (4-5) at home without Dixon. Coach Anderson hasn't released the length of the suspension, nor the severity.
