Columbia, Mo. - Missouri's Phil Pressey was named the Southeastern Conference Player of the Week on Monday after pouring in a career high 26 points to lead the Tigers to a thrilling 66-64 win over Bucknell.
The Preseason SEC Player of the Year, Pressey currently ranks among the nation's Top 10 in assists per game (7.2) and fueled Missouri's offense on Saturday, hitting 10-of-22 shots, including a perfect 3-of-3 shooting from three-point range in the second half.
Pressey also dished five assists and is now tied with Atlanta Hawks Head Coach Larry Drew for third on the school's career assists list with 433.
