Mizzou point guard Phil Pressey out two weeks with broken finger

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - Missouri point guard Phil Pressey will be

sidelined at least two weeks after breaking his right ring finger

in practice.

Pressey, a freshman, started the last two games for the

ninth-ranked Tigers after sophomore Michael Dixon was suspended for

violating team rules. Dixon is practicing with the team but his

status was unclear for Wednesday's game against No. 21 Illinois in

St. Louis.

Pressey had a career-high 15 points and had 11 assists to tie

the school freshman record on Saturday in a 116-63 victory over

Central Arkansas. He's averaging 5.2 points and 4.1 assists,

averaging 20.5 minutes per game.
