For Mizzou, it's about to become a question of style. After the game, Mike Anderson spoke about the effectiveness of Laurence Bowers off the bench, saying that he thought "he likes playing with Phil." In Pressey's recent two-game explosion (he averaged 1.45 points per shot against Texas A&M and Kansas State), his quick first step on both ends of the floor seemed to create the ever-so-elusive spark for the Tigers, as the Fastest 40 Minutes seems to get even faster when the ball is running through No. 1's hands. A year ago, Mizzou's primary guards -- J.T. Tiller and Zaire Taylor -- were both workmanlike, blue-collar style players. With Pressey, the behind-the-back passes, alley-oops and ridiculous threes bring an element of Showtime to Mizzou Arena, even as he grins while frantically pestering offensive players into retaliation fouls.

-- From the ramblings of someone who is curious to see what the emergence of Phil Pressey means for playing time at the 1 spot.
