This is really the first UC team (excluding the Cronin Juco teams) that doesn't have a highlight type player in as long as I can remember. They don't seem to have a player who is quick off the ground. A player who has quick feet on defensive to get into the passing lanes. They don't have a player who can come from the weak side and block a basketball 10 rows into the stands. I have started watching a log of college basketball (other than UC and OSU) and have begun to notice the lack in explosiveness that plagues UC. Anyone else notice this?
That player is Dion Dixon. He's already had a couple alley-oops this year, and he can get off the floor very well for a guard. He has the ability to throw it down very well. Athletically, I would compare him to a Dwyane Wade.
