Columbia, Mo. - Laurence Bowers scored 26 points and grabbed 14 rebounds to lead #15 Missouri to a 115-74 win over Arkansas-Fort Smith in the club's final exhibition tune-up of the year.
Missouri fought through a sluggish start as head coach Mike Anderson worked in four new starters from the exhibition-opener, including three newcomers (Phil Pressey, Ricardo Ratliffe and Ricky Kreklow) to carry a 45-33 lead into halftime. The Tigers then turned up their defensive pressure to record 17 total steals and score 70 points in the final 20 minutes en route to the 41-point victory.
While he may have battled some early-game jitters in his first collegiate start, Phil Pressey, a freshman from Dallas, lit up the nets in the second frame, scoring 19 second-half tallies thanks to 3-of-5 shooting from three-point range and a perfect 6-of-6 shooting from the foul line. His brother, junior college transfer Matt Pressey, overcame 2-of-8 field goal shooting to hit 11-of-13 free throws for 15 points.
Jonathan Sharpless scored 15 points for Arkansas-Fort Smith, while Djorde Stojanovic added 13.
Missouri opens regular season play on Nov. 18 vs. Western Illinois at Mizzou Arena. The contest is part of the 2010 Cancun Challenge. Game time at Mizzou Arena is slated for 7 p.m.
