The Trib: You're in good hands
"[Dixon] was huge. He didn’t play like a freshman at all today," sophomore forward Laurence Bowers said. "If you didn’t see his class on the TV or you didn’t know him, you would think he was a senior. The guy played with his heart. You’ve got to admire a guy like that. He’s just a freshman. He’s got three more years of this."
Dixon’s performance came on the heels of an eight-point outing in the Tigers’ first-round victory over Clemson on Friday.
"That’s going to give him added motivation to work on his game and just become prolific, and it’s something that our team is going to need next year," sophomore guard Kim English said.

Dr. Saturday: So much for Sam Bradford, Cautionary Tale
Outgoing Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford barely played as a junior thanks to a pair of major injuries to his throwing shoulder, didn't run, jump or throw at last month's combine for top prospects and hasn't thrown for any scouts. Presumably, his game tape from two prolific seasons as the Sooners' starter hasn't changed. But he has definitively overtaken Nebraska's Ndamukong Suh as the unanimous No. 1 pick to the St. Louis Rams on every mock draft issued in the last week.I'm sorry, but the LAST thing the Rams need right now is a quarterback. Until you have a better defense and a line that can PROTECT a big-time QB, there is absolutely no need to spend the #1 pick on one ... especially one that is going to get lit up all season and is coming off of an injury-plagued season. Just insane that he's overtaken Suh so definitively without a single game being played. But this is what happens in the NFL.
