COLLEGE PARK, Md.-- A graduate of Calvert Hall (Baltimore, Md.), Juan Dixon, always dreamed of representing his home state on the basketball court. Dixon caught the eye of then head coach Gary Williams, who extended an offer to the local guard. The rest is written in Maryland basketball history.
"When Maryland offered me that scholarship it was a no brainer," Dixon said. "I stopped the rest of my visits and I told Coach I'm here."
Maryland's all-time leading scorer returned to Cole Field House for Maryland Madness on October 18, and he spoke exclusively to TurtleSportsReport.com. Dixon talks about how much it meant to represent his home state, some of his favorite memories of playing in Cole Field House, and more in the video below.
