College career

As a senior at the University of North Dakota Beasley averaged 26.6 points and 8.9 rebounds per game, while shooting 51.3% from the field, and with a 73.6% free throw accuracy.

Pro career

Drafted by the NBA's Miami Heat in the second round of the 2003 NBA Draft, he played only two games for them before being cut. During his tenure, he averaged 1.0 points per game. He also played for the CBA's Sioux Falls Skyforce and the NBA D-League's Dakota Wizards for nine games before buying out his own contract.[1]

Beasley played for the Sydney Kings of Australia's NBL during the 2006–07 season, but he was released following the team's exit from the playoffs. In October 2007, he moved to Israel and signed with Ironi Ramat Gan.[2] Beasley joined the EiffelTowers Den Bosch of the Netherlands for the 2008-2009 season, but he was released in January 2009, after testing positive for Carboxy-THC, the active ingredient of marijuana. He was then resigned to a one year contract by the EiffelTowers for the 2009/2010 season in hope that he would be their starting center for the upcoming year.[3]
