BIOGRAPHY: After putting together one of the best freshman seasons ever, Beasley could be the No. 1 overall pick. Beasley averaged 26.2 points and became just the third freshman in NCAA history to lead the nation in rebounds at 12.4 per game. He had the second-most rebounds and third-most points by a freshman in NCAA history, helping Kansas State to its first NCAA tournament victory in 20 years. Beasley also was a consensus All-American, was named Big 12 player of the year and finished second to North Carolina's Tyler Hansbrough for numerous national player of the year awards. An agile 6-foot-10 power forward, Beasley is exceptionally versatile, able to power his way inside or step out to the perimeter. He shot 53.2 percent from the field, including 37.9 percent from 3-point range. He's also a solid free-throw shooter for a power forward, as he made 77.4 percent of his attempts. In the NCAA tournament, Beasley averaged 23.0 points and 12.0 rebounds in two games, shooting 48.4 percent from the field but going 1-for-5 from beyond the arc. He may be undersized to play power forward in the NBA, but his ability to hit shots from the perimeter should make a possible transition to small forward easier. On the defensive end, Beasley averaged team highs of 1.6 blocks and 1.3 steals per game, and seemed to get better as the season progressed. His work ethic has been questioned at times, and he will be facing a lot of pressure entering the NBA at the age of 19.
