Phil Pressey was named to the Cousy Award Top 20 list.
Jan. 10, 2013
Columbia, Mo. - For the second consecutive season Missouri point guard Phil Pressey is among the 20 watch list finalists for the 2013 Bob Cousy Collegiate Point Guard of the Year Award.
The annual honor, named for Hall of Famer and former Boston Celtic Bob Cousy, recognizes the top point guards in men's college basketball. An original list of 80 candidates was trimmed down by a nationally based committee to the below list of 20.
Pressey has been on a tear over the last three weeks. The Dallas native has recorded career highs in assists and scoring and set single-game assist records at both Mizzou Arena and Pauley Pavilion (UCLA).
Pressey opened his run with a 12-point, 11-assist double-double vs. previously undefeated Illinois in the Bud Light Braggin' Rights game in St. Louis and then recorded the first 19-point, 19-assist game in basketball (college or NBA) since John Stockton with the Utah Jazz during the 1990-91 season. Pressey enjoyed that 19-19 game at UCLA and broke the Pauley Pavilion record in the process. The 19 assists were also the most in college basketball since 2008 and the most by a major college performer since 2000.
Pressey then scored a career high 26 points on Jan. 5 to lead the Tigers to a win over Bucknell (also named SEC Player of the Week) and recently scored 11 points and dished 13 assists to top Alabama in the SEC-opener. Those 13 dimes tied the Mizzou Arena record.
Over his last four games Pressey has logged three point-assist double-doubles and is averaging 17.0 points and 12.0 assists.
His 7.6 assists per game are the most in school history and rank No. 6 nationally.
Missouri Basketball returns to action on Saturday night at Ole Miss. Game time is scheduled for 7 p.m. in Oxford, Miss., and the game will be televised live on FSN.
