The 5-foot-4 junior guard earned back-to-back Player of the Week honors from the NE-10, the first two of her career, highlighted by her 16-point, 5-assist, 4-rebound, 3-steal effort in a 73-66 win over previously undefeated Bentley on Feb. 23.
“M.L. ran our schemes perfectly against Bentley,” said Stonehill head coach Trisha Brown.
“One of the things that kept drawing us back while we were recruiting her was M.L.'s ability, despite being one of the smaller players on the court, to make things happen.”
She is averaging a team-high 13.7 points, 6.1 assists and 1.3 steals per game, and ranks third in rebounding (6.6).
Through Tuesday’s regular-season final against Saint Anselm, Dixon was shooting 44.2 percent (103 for 233) from the field, and a conference-leading 85.6 percent (125 for 146) from the free-throw line.
