Michael Beasley is going to be the first player drafted in the 2008 NBA Draft.
But even Beasley can’t carry a team by himself.
Despite Beasley putting up a Big 12 record 44 points, the No. 25 Kansas State Wildcats lost to the Baylor Bears 92-86 last night in Waco, Texas.
Kansas State (18-8) was literally a two person team against the Bears, besides the 44 from Beasley (who also grabbed 13 rebounds), they got 31 from Bill Walker. Do the math: 86 total points - 44 from Beasley - 31 from Walker = the rest of the team scored only 11 points. That wont win you games, Big 12 Championships or NCAA Tournament games.
The Baylor Bears (18-8) were led by Curtis Jerrells who put up 24 points and 7 assists. Kevin Rogers, who put in 18 points and 10 rebounds, summed up the game. “The final score shows that two people can’t be a team. We came out and played as a team.”
Kansas State better figure out how to play as a team very soon since No. 7 ranked Texas will be coming to town on Monday.
Beasley is a monster but he will need more help.
