ST. LOUIS (AP) _ Missouri point guard Phil Pressey, coming off a productive but erratic junior season, will enter the NBA draft.

Pressey is the Tigers' career leader with 580 assists and broke his own single-season mark with 240 assists last season. He tied the school record with 196 steals. He had career highs with an 11.9-point average and seven assists per game, tying an SEC record with 19 assists in an overtime loss at UCLA. He was also was hampered by questionable decision-making in several close losses.

The 5-foot-11 Pressey was a first-team all-SEC pick after being named the conference's preseason player of the year. He's the son of former NBA player Paul Pressey and was recruited to Missouri by former coach Mike Anderson, who was the elder Pressey's former college roommate.
