Phil Pressey’s career-high 26 points on Saturday earned him SEC Player of the Week Honors from the league office.
Pressey eclipsed his previous high of 23 which he earned in last year’s Big 12 Tournament win over Texas. The Junior guard was the second SEC honoree this season with Laurence Bowers taking home the team’s first honors after their win over Illinois.
Missouri’s point guard is now tied with Larry Drew for third on the all-time assists list at Mizzou with 433, after his five helpers on Saturday. Pressey leads the SEC with 7.2 assists-per-game.
The Tigers open SEC play against Alabama on Tuesday, coverage begins with The Big Show with Will and Thom live at Mizzou Arena at 4 PM. Pregame starts at 5:30 with a 6 PM tip.
