English is the Tigers' high-usage guy (31.6 percent of shots, 14.0 ppg), while Denmon is a gunner who makes 40.7 percent of his threes. Dixon Jr. is expected to blossom in an expanded role now that J.T. Tiller and Zaire Taylor have graduated, while Pressey, the son of ex-NBA point forward Paul Pressey, is a point guard who should thrive in Mizzou's up-tempo attack.
