Missouri men’s basketball coach Mike Anderson said that he has reinstated sophomore point guard Michael Dixon and he will play Wednesday night against Illinois.

Mike Anderson comments on Dixon and Illinois game

Dixon missed two games for an undisclosed reason. At the time, all Anderson would say was that Dixon “violated team rules.”  Dixon’s reinstatement comes just after the team learned that freshmen Phil Pressey, (the team’s other point guard), broke his right ring finger.
