GREENVILLE, Ill. -- The St. Louis Intercollegiate Athletic Conference honored Greenville University's Johari Dix with its final player of the week award for the 2017-18 season.

He put up 32 points, on 11-of-12 shooting, in a win over Spalding, adding seven assists and five steals.

Dix followed with 14 points, in just 20 minutes, in a win over Webster, adding nine assists and five steals.
