FROM THE YARD: PSYCHOTIC WHITE BOY FROM CHAPEL HILL

Ryan over at Sportable.com asked who’s the Player of the Year – Kansas State’s super frosh Kevin Beasely who is following in the one (spectacular year) and done footsteps of Kevin Durant and Greg Oden or UNC’s supper hustling erector set Tyler Hansbrough?

Good question.

"Beasley’s biggest competitor in the National Player of the Year debate is Hansbrough, the psychotic white boy from Chapel Hill. Hansbrough’s physical abilities can’t compare with Beasley’s, but his determination sure can. If it’s possible for the ACC’s leading scorer and rebounder to be “scrappy” and “feisty,” Hansbrough would fit that description.

Although Hansbrough will definitely be a better NBA player than Mark Madsen, it wouldn’t be a huge stretch to say their college games are quite similar. He won’t be a superstar in the NBA, but that doesn’t stop him from being a dominant college player. He initiates contact and gets to the free throw line constantly, where he’s hitting over 80%."
