Dixon had 10 points, six rebounds and four assists for Memphis in Saturday's overtime loss to Connecticut.

After transferring from Missouri in the spring of 2013 following two different sexual assault charges, Dixon has largely stayed out of the spotlight while serving as the top guard off the bench for Memphis. He's averaging 11.5 points, 2.3 rebounds and 2.5 assists on the season.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Dixon will be allowed to play for Memphis in 2013-14 after being granted a transfer waiver by the NCAA, the AP reports. The guard averaged 13.5 points and 3.3 assists for Missouri in 2011-12 before getting kicked off the team.

Dixon is a top notch college guard who can facilitate the offense and score. The Tigers are going to be very talented in the backcourt with Dixon, Joe Jackson, and Geron Johnson. If they get any frontcourt production, they will be a factor in the American Athletic Conference.

Dixon, who did not play in 2012-13 for Missouri after being the subject in two separate sexual assault cases, will transfer to Memphis, the SportsXchange reports. Dixon was not charged in either case.

Dixon averaged 13.5 points and 3.3 assists for the loaded Missouri team in 2011-12 and was expected to take a lead scoring role for the Tigers last season (that role fell on the shoulders of Phil Pressey). Memphis is hopeful that Dixon will not have to sit out after transferring, since his situation is much like Maryland's Dez Wells.

Dixon, who was on indefinite suspension, has decided to transfer from Missouri, reports.

Dixon has not played this season. Police incident reports indicate that Dixon has twice been accused of sexual assault, but no charges were filed. With Dixon out of the picture, Pepperdine transfer Keion Bell and freshman Negus Webster-Chan will continue to get major playing time.

Dixon will not play in the Missouri opener as his indefinite suspension continues, CBS Sports reports.

Dixon was suspended in October for a violation of team rules. To show that the suspension is not just a slap on the wrist, coach Frank Haith announced that the suspension will include the opener Saturday against Southern Illinois-Edwardsville. Pepperdine transfer Keion Bell may join the starting lineup.

Dixon led the Tigers with 22 points (8-12 FG, 2-3 FT) and contributed five assists Friday in Norfolk State's upset of Missouri.

Dixon finishes his junior season with averages of 13.5 points and 3.3 assists per game. He will likely occupy the starting shooting guard spot next year for Tigers' coach Frank Haith. Dixon could easily become the next Missouri guard to average nearly 20 points per game next season.

Dixon finished with 21 points (8-10 FG, 5-5 FT), five rebounds and four assists in a win over Iowa State.

Dixon shot lights out Wednesday and continues to prove himself to be the super-sub coach Frank Haith imagined when he gave him the opportunity to become Missouri's sixth man early in the year. This season, he is averaging 13.3 points and 3.2 assists per game.
