Basketball Spotlight Feature: Big Things Come In Small Packages

Mikey Dixon Delaware's Little Big Man

If you know Mikey Dixon than you know he’s loves a challenge. Delaware’s Little Big Man has been the smallest player on the floor most of his short career but that hasn’t stopped him from turning heads each time he touches the hardwood. I got a chance to check out Dixon at several events including the Jr. All American and the Hoop Group Jr. Elite Camp where he won MVP. After watching him rock one thing is edvident, if you are going against him you better bring your lunch because Dixon goes hard buzzer to buzzer and plays to win. He has point guard savvy and is willing to take the big shot whenever he has to. His next stop apparently will be the Gym Rat Midnight Madness this weekend in Cherry Hill, NJ and Madness coordinator Vince Jackson agrees with our assessment of Dixon. “We had to have Mikey in this event because he’s proven that he can get it done at any venue. It’s an opportunity to see him against the best and I look forward to it”. Telling from his past look for Dixon to prove he was worthy of the invite.
