Missouri point guard Phil Pressey, a former Episcopal School of Dallas standout who helped the Eagles win a pair of Southwest Preparatory Conference championships, helped the Tigers to a huge 63-60 win over No. 5 Florida on Tuesday night in Columbia.

Pressey helped the Tigers (19-7, 8-5) erase a 13-point deficit and remain undefeated at home this season. The junior had seven points, six rebounds, and 10 assists. Mizzou lost to the Gators by 31 points a month ago in Gainesville.

Speaking of Pressey, make sure you read my feature story on him in this week’s Preston Hollow People.
