Pressey Mulls Move from Missouri to NBA
COLUMBIA (AP) - Missouri point guard Phil Pressey says he's weighing whether to return for his senior season or leave school for the NBA draft.
Pressey remained uncertain when asked about his future shortly after the Tigers' 84-72 NCAA tournament loss to Colorado State on March 21. He has until the April 28 draft-entry deadline to make up his mind.
The 5-foot-11 playmaker had an erratic junior season, averaging a career-best 11.9 points and 7.1 assists but also 3.5 turnovers.
He made only 37.6 percent of his field-goal attempts and struggled with late-game decision-making late in losses to UCLA, Louisiana State, Texas A&M, Arkansas, Kentucky and Tennessee.
