Dixon to practice with UM in 2 weeks

December 07, 1997|By Paul McMullen

Maryland basketball coach Gary Williams said that Juan Dixon, an All-Metro guard from Calvert Hall, will begin practice with the Terps on Dec. 21.

Last month, Dixon finally received an SAT score high enough to give him freshman eligibility, but Williams isn't sure how -- or if -- he'll use him this season.

"Everything's fine with Juan, he's [registered] in school," Williams said.

"I want to see what he looks like, see what kind of shape he's in. We play a game the day after his first practice, and that one is probably out of the question, but then we play twice more before our next ACC game. We'll see how it goes."
