Former Quinnipiac guard Mikey Dixon transferring to St. John’s

(WTNH)–Former Quinnipiac guard Mikey Dixon announced on Twitter Tuesday that he will transfer to St. John’s.

The 6-2 guard from New Castle, Delaware led the Bobcats and all MAAC freshmen in scoring at 16.5 points per game last season. He also put up 3.7 rebounds and 2.3 assists per en route to winning MAAC Rookie of the Year honors.

Dixon requested his release from Quinnipiac after the school fired head coach Tom Moore in March. The school hired Baker Dunleavy as its new head coach weeks after.
