A couple of Missouri recruits were in St. Louis over the weekend for the Demetrious Johnson Charitable Foundation High School All-Star Game but Phil Pressey was the one everyone was there so see.â†µ
The 5-foot-10 Pressey, a natural showman, did not disappoint. He scored 21 points, including four 3-pointers, and delivered a pair of well-timed alley-oop passes to help the national all-star team secure a 140-122 victory over a squad filled primarily with St. Louis-area players.â†µ
“I played all right. It’s an all-star game, so it’s hit or miss,” said Pressey, who kept a smile on his face throughout. “You just come out and have fun.”â†µ
He's part of a six-man recruiting class. Another recruit, Ricky Kreklow, participated in the game.
