NCAA clears Dixon to play at Memphis

The Sports NetworkSeptember 4, 2013 

The NCAA has cleared Memphis guard Michael Dixon to play this season for the Tigers.

Memphis said it received notification Wednesday that Dixon, a senior, will be allowed to compete immediately after transferring from Missouri in June.

Dixon, who has one year of eligibility remaining, averaged 13.5 points and 3.3 assists for Missouri in 2011-12 -- his most recent season.

He was accused last year of sexual assault for the second time, bringing his time at Missouri to an end. Dixon was never charged with a crime.
