Pressey has dished 35 assists over his last three games and with his five dimes today he moved into a tie for third all-time in school history. He equaled Larry Drew (current Atlanta Hawks Head Coach) with 433. Pressey is also just seven dimes shy of topping the century mark in assists for the third consecutive season. He now has 93.
