Dickson tallied a team-best 10 goals, scoring on 62.5 percent of his shots, and added two assists in the Cavaliers’ pair of wins over then-No. 11 Johns Hopkins (March 7) and Towson (March 11). One of Dickson’s 10 goals was on UVA’s man-up against the Tigers. He also contributed three ground balls and two caused turnovers.
