Dix, a native of Atlanta, Ga., was recognized following a career season in 2008. He finished the regular campaign with career-high totals in goals, assists and shots.

Michigan State, which claimed its second Big Ten tournament title with a 1-0 win over Indiana on Sunday, swept the top awards. Spartans senior forward Doug DeMartin earned Offensive Player of the Championship honors, while MSU goalkeeper Avery Steinlage was named the Defensive Player of the Championship.
The Badgers (9-7-3) now await word on a possible NCAA tournament berth, with the 48-team field to be announced between 5 and 5:30 p.m. Monday on ESPNews.
