Q-FACTOR

Five questions with Missouri junior point guard Phil Pressey

Q: How much one-on-one did you play with your dad (former NBA player Paul Pressey) growing up?

A: All the time. Actually it was two-on-one, my brother and I would play him. He always found ways to cheat a little bit and win the game.

Q: What did your dad teach you about the game of basketball?

A: He taught me how to play the game the right way, to do the little things, passing, playing defense. Do what it takes to win basketball games.

Q: What do you get more satisfaction from, scoring more than 20 points in a game or having 10 assists in a game?

A: I've never got 10 assists (in a game) so that would be cool. That would mean we would have a lot of guys in double figures. It would be a happy locker room.

Q: Biggest difference between playing in the SEC compared to the Big 12?

A: It's pretty much the same. Just different arenas. I think in the SEC, they let you play through fouls a little bit more.

Q: Toughest player that's guarded you this season?

A: I wouldn't say it's one player, more teams. Ole Miss was pretty tough, Florida. I'd have to say, though, probably Louisville. Their guards get on you on the perimeter and their big guys are tough around the basket.
