Michael Beasley the future no.1 pick in the 2008 NBA Draft




MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) -- Kansas State guard Blake Young figured teammate Michael Beasley would break some records during his time with the Wildcats.

He just didn't know it would happen in his first game.

Beasley had 32 points and a Big 12 Conference-record 24 rebounds in his debut at Kansas State, leading the 25th-ranked Wildcats to a 94-63 victory over Sacramento State on Friday night.

"As far as (Beasley) jumping into the record books, I figured it was going to happen pretty soon," Young said. "Mike is excellent on rebounding. That's what he does. He's out there just snatching up everything that comes off the rim."

Beasley, the most highly touted recruit in school history and rated the nation's No. 1 incoming freshman by Rivals.com, broke the Big 12 mark of 23 rebounds set by Kevin Durant, who starred at Texas as a freshman last season, and Kansas' Nick Collison.

It was the second 30-point, 20-rebound game in Kansas State history. Bob Boozer had 36 points and 23 rebounds in 1957.

The dominating performance left Kansas State coach Frank Martin -- who won in his first game ever as a college head coach -- rather impressed. He even dared to mention Beasley in the same breath as that freshman who dominated the Big 12 last season.

"I'm not into comparing people," Martin said. "I think everyone's an individual, but the obvious comparison is with Kevin Durant because Kevin Durant was such a great player. If Kevin Durant was a freshman this year and Mike was a freshman last year, everybody would be trying to figure out if Kevin Durant can play up to Michael Beasley's standards.

"Mike's a heck of a player."

Martin is keeping Beasley and the rest of Kansas State's newcomers from talking to the media until further notice.

Young had 22 points and Jacob Pullen added 18 points and five assists for the Wildcats (1-0), who are ranked in the preseason poll for the first time since 1972. Young was 5-for-8 from the field, including 4-of-5 on 3-pointers.

Loren Leath had 23 points for the Hornets (0-1).

Kansas State was without three of its key returning players. Redshirt freshman Bill Walker and seniors David Hoskins and Clent Stewart all did not play because of injuries.

Martin said Hoskins -- who was second-team All-Big 12 selection last season -- could be out for an extended period of time after having surgery on his knee Thursday.

Walker and Stewart are both expected to be back shortly, Martin said.

With that said, Martin is not expecting a drop-off in the performance of his team.

"That's sports," he said. "If I start making excuses, then all I'm doing is preparing our team to fail. Injuries are a part of sports."

The Wildcats played at much more of an uptempo pace than last season, when they averaged 70.1 points per game under Bob Huggins, who left after just one season in Manhattan to return to West Virginia, his alma mater.

While that fast-paced, breakneck style produced a lot of points, it also created a ton of turnovers. The Hornets had 31 and Kansas State had 26, including eight from Beasley and six from Pullen, a freshman point guard.

"It sounds like nitpicking, but for us to be any good we cannot have 26 turnovers in a basketball game," Martin said.

The Wildcats' pressure defense had the Hornets' offense out of rhythm from the beginning, forcing 10 turnovers in the first 8 minutes and taking a 20-9 lead.

"Up close they are deceptively quick and I was very impressed with that," Sacramento State coach Jerome Jenkins said. "They've got really long arms that can get into the passing lanes."

Kansas State -- looking for its first NCAA tournament appearance since 1996 -- led 50-33 at halftime, and by then Beasley already had 16 points and 17 rebounds. He broke Norris Coleman's freshman school record for rebounds in just 19 minutes.

"He's a pro," Jenkins said. "They'll be lucky to have him after this year. That's all I can say about him."

The No.1 pick in the 2008 NBA Draft the Miami Heat select Michael Beasley from Kansas State University.






Shaquille O'Neal: " Beasley would be coming to Miami Next season to save our franchise, and i cannot wait to passed the torch to the future phenom".


Michael " The Beast" Beasley"

Depends on the team needs, a team like Seattle with an established primary scorer would want Rose who probably brings less firepower but more intangibles ie: D, leadership and passing ability… Someone like Phily or Charlotte (unless J-Rich lights it up) would want Beasly or OJ to take the scoring burden.

Charlotte have a bunch of co-stars, no-one stands out as the go to guy...
Iggy is a great player but i see him as a 2ndary scorer, like pippen was to jordan, he has to take the scoring load at the moment cos theres no one else

He won't. It's an exhibition game. Floyd would be dumb to keep Mayo in for that long. He should be testing out different set of lineups.

to me rose was the most impressive overall, though mayo really did look like he wasn't putting in much effort and getting that type of result. beasley wasn't as much wow as the other 2, but just as effective.

They already do have a seperartion. Rose is a smarter and more selfless player, whose humble and essentially a good person @ heart and is willing to learn and grow as a person and player.

Where as Mayo is a punk ass ghetto piece of crap, with a "me first" mentality to the 10th degree, and from all accounts is pretty unstable. His attitude is going to be the death of him.

What about Eric Gordon, btw? BIG time scorer. Or Jared Bayless ... or Kevin Love. This is one of the best freshmen classes for College basketball in a LONG time.

So basically the seperation is your personal bias. Derrick Rose is the cool kid, modest, humble person portrayed in the media who really doesnt dominate the media like OJ Mayo who has a history of articles, reports (2nd hand accounts) that arent so positive. So therefore you conclude after lookin at youtube highlights, nbadraft.net, draftexpress.com, rivals.com and whatever sites you get your information to base your opinion on hangs on character/personality?

Notice how you just bashed OJ the person and now his game. The boy has game.

So again OJ Mayo = Derrick Rose...until they seperate from one another. I dont care if you would let Derrick Rose pork your sister before OJ Mayo. I dont care if you would add Derrick Rose on myspace and deny OJ because he thinks he is the shyt. F*cking irrelevant so get out of here!

And OJ dropped 32pts today.

Where did I say OJ didn't have game?

I think his characteristics as a person will ultimately affect his on court performance.

To act like things off the basketball court can't and don't determine who is potentially a better or worse basketball would be complete and utter ignorance. And so in this case, you are a prime example.

So go about it, champ.

And I denied OJ Mayo on facebook today.

What was said is your basis for seperation is based solely on character of each player which is moronic. Because one guy is an a-hole to you and the other isnt...the one who isnt wins the ">" contest?

I think his characteristics as a person will ultimately affect his on court performance.

How? Show me how off the court issues has affected OJ Mayo. He still was a top rated talent. He still was a sought out recruit. He still is a top NBA prospect. He dropped 32pts. His HS season speaks for itself production wise. What off the court problems, issues has affected his game? Come on kid I'm all ears or eyes in this case.

I dont like, never liked Karl Malone...it doesnt affect me when I speak on his NBA career, talent, skills vs other great players at his respective position. I dont think he is the best PF of all time not because I dont like the guy...its because I feel another player is BETTER than he was when both were at thier very best.

You cant do the same when discussing Derrick Rose vs OJ Mayo. So again after OJ Mayo drops 32pts today...we shall wait until either has gained seperation from the other because as of today its even.
