Josh Dix, a 3-star 2022 Iowa men’s basketball recruit from Council Bluffs Lincoln, broke the tibia and fibula in his right leg Friday night in Lincoln’s game against Le Mars and was taken to a Council Bluffs hospital by ambulance.
Dix reportedly landed awkwardly after trying to block a shot. The game was called with 1:45 left and Lincoln ahead, 52-33.
He is a 6-foot-5 shooting guard who is on the 2022 McDonald’s All American Games watch list.
Dix is a four-year starter. He was a first-team all-state player as a junior. He averages 20.4 points, and over 7 rebounds and 5 assists per game.
Iowa Coach Fran McCaffery saw Dix scrimmage in person as recently as Dec. 30 in Waukee.
“Josh is incredibly versatile,” McCaffery said after Dix signed a national letter of intent. “He can play multiple positions. He has a great frame. Josh is good with the ball in his hands finding people and getting to the rim. He’s physical defensively and is an excellent rebounder for his position. Josh is a winning player. We are really excited about him.”
