He was pretty awesome for Missouri in 11-12. A big credit to the offense Haith brought with him, an offense that goes back to his days as an assistant at Texas, with T.J. Ford at the helm of the offense.
Pressey had good guards around him last season. He just didn't have any leadership. Anderson had a team philosophy which carried over to the 11-12 season with English and Bowers. When Haith's philosophy came into play last year everyone just started playing street ball. Pressey's offense is set up by his passing game being efficient. When Pressey decided he was the best player on the team he stopped passing to set up the offense and just shot the most ridiculous shots all season. The same thing these players do now. It's glorified street ball, and it's terrible to watch.
