ROOKIE OF THE WEEK
Michael Beasley, Kansas State, F, Fr., 6-10, 235, Washington, D.C./Notre Dame Prep [Mass.]
Beasley recorded his 11th double-double in as many games as Kansas State won its only game of the week, 90-48, over Winston-Salem State. The freshman forward finished with 40 points, the most scored by any Big 12 player this season, to go along with 15 rebounds. He shot 14-of-22 (.636) from the field, including 3-of-4 (.750) from beyond the arc. He also connected on 9-of-13 (.692) free throws and had three blocked shots. It was the most points by a Kansas State player since Askia Jones collected a school-record 62 versus Fresno State on March 24, 1994. Beasley posted the 10th outing of 40 points or more by a player in Big 12 history, while recording his fifth contest with 30 or more points this year.
