I got to see Michael Dixon play yesterday

Overall he's a solid recruit and looks to me like he'll fit Mike Anderson's style perfectly. Here's what I noticed.

The Good:

shooting ability- he does have a very sweet shot, especially from deep. His 3-ball reminds me alot of Kim English.

speed- very fast with the ball in his hands. Kind of like Clemente for k-state. 

stealing ability- man can this kid pick some pockets! I think he had 2 steals in the first 3 minutes of the game last night.

The Bad:

driving to the hoop- Dixon simply doesn't do this enough. For someone as fast as he is he should be taking the ball the length of the floor.

free throw shooting- It's not like he's a bad free throw shooter or anything but he's not great ( I think he was 8 of 14 or something like that) His shot just has to much movement, he goes down then back up then back down then up then he shoots. Maybe I'm nitpicking but it just looks awkward to me.

sometimes he looks a little lost on D- Only happened once or twice but he would get sucked into the lane and it would allow for an open shot for Grandview.

Gentlemen, we've got a great basketball player on our hands.
