Northwestern Oklahoma State University’s Brandon Dixon was honored by the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics for his hard work and dedication on the hardwood this season, being named an NAIA Honorable Mention All-American.
“Brandon was our most consistent player this season and had great numbers with everybody geared towards taking him away,” remarked Head Coach Andrew Brown. “We are proud of the season he had because he is extremely coachable, a very good teammate, and is all about team success. He is very deserving of being recognized as an All-American.”
Dixon, a 6-7 senior forward from Oxnard, Calif., spent two seasons at Northwestern Oklahoma State after transferring from Ventura College (Calif.). Dixon was selected as a Sooner Athletic Conference second-team all-conference member this past season. He led Northwestern in scoring (16.9 points per game), points (491) and rebounds (7.8 per game), while posting 11 double-doubles. Dixon was the only Ranger to start in all 29 games.
All-American selections are made by the NAIA Men’s Basketball Coaches’ Association All-America Committee and comprises a First, Second, Third and Honorable Mention Team. There are 10 members on each of the first three All-America teams.
