UIC forward Dikembe Dixson received Horizon League Freshman of the Week honors for the second time Monday. Dixson scored 20 points, 10 rebounds and four assists Saturday in the Flames’ loss to Illinois.
Dixson also received Chicago Player and Freshman of the Week awards from The Catch and Shoot.
Dixson has scored at least 20 points in each of the last two games. He will try to continue that streak Wednesday when UIC hosts Illinois State.
