Sports Fact of the Day

If you havent heard of this guy, you will.

Michael Beasley (19 yrs old, 6'10, 235 lbs) compiled an astounding record of 138-5 as a high school player: 30-0 at National Christian Academy in Fort Washington, Maryland as a freshman, 33-1 at Riverdale Baptist School in Upper Marlboro, Maryland as a sophomore, 40-1 at Oak Hill Academy in Mouth of Wilson, Virginia as a junior and 35-3 at Notre Dame Prep in Fitchburg, Massachusetts as a senior.

He attended six different high schools before college. He played on the same Maryland AAU team as Kevin Durant.

Beasley averaged team highs of 13.8 ppg. and 8.3 rpg at the 2006 FIBA Americas U18 Championship.

Here are his current stats as a freshman with Kansas State:

26.7 PPG (top 3 in D1), 12.6 reb/g (best in D1), 54.0% fg%, 1.6 blk/g, 1.4 stls/g

if you havent seen him play, he can use both hands equally well - i think he is right handed but actually shoots left. when he is playing, he is noticeably better than everyone on the court. Look for this guy to be playing 4 or 5 games a week soon.
