Last season, Mizzou point guard Phil Pressey led his undersized Tigers to a thirty win season and a Big 12 Tournament Championship.

Pressey led one of the nation's most prolific offenses and by averaging 10.3 points and 6.3 assists per game, leading the gun blazing offensive attack under head coach Frank Haith.

Pressey was so electric and so impressive that he turned several heads with his play, ball control, and leadership.

Pressey turned so many heads that he was invited to participate in the 2012 LeBron James Skills Academy this weekend in Las Vegas, Nevada. 

Pressey will join twenty of the nation's top collegiate players for the camp that runs from July 6-9.

Other notable players invited to the camp include CJ Fair of Syracuse, Tim Hardaway Jr of Michigan, and Jeff Withey of Kansas.

Congrats to Flip Pressey for his invitation to particpate in such an exclusive camp and hopefully the point guard can learn a couple things to try and repeat Mizzou's thirty win season from last year.
