He started playing basketball while he attended Lake Clifton High School, then at Calvert Hall, and during his career there, he scored a huge 1,590 points. Dixon continued playing basketball at the Maryland University, and became one of the best players in their history, leading the Maryland Terrapins to the NCAA Championship title in 2002.

Before he left the NBA, Dixon signed a contract with the Atlanta Hawks, but was waived after only 20 days. After that, he moved to Europe, and played for such teams as Unicaja Malaga, Aris Thessaloniki, and Bandirma Banvit, which also increased his net worth.
