Kansas State entered the 2007-2008 season boasting the best recruiting class in school history. That class was headlined by Michael Beasley. Beasley averaged 26 points and 12 rebounds a game during his only season in Manhattan, Kansas. He was named the Big 12 Player of the Year and a consensus 1st Team All American.
The Wildcats went 20-11 during the regular season climbing to #18 in the rankings in mid February. After a late season slump KSU entered the NCAA Tournament as the #11 seed in the Midwest Region. With help from fellow freshman Bill Walker, Beasley and the Wildcats upset #6 seed USC, 80-67.
Their season would end in the Round of 32 in a loss to #3 seed Wisconsin. The loss didn't diminish one of the greatest freshman seasons in the history of college basketball.
"He's scoring as easy as it was for Durant, but they're different players. For a young man at his age to come into college basketball and play with the strength and force that he has is really unique. He's just so hard to guard."
