Beamish Brings Talents to Men’s Basketball Sidelines

SAINT LEO, Fla. – As the third addition to first-year head coach Lance Randall's staff, Bryan Beamish has been effectively utilizing his talents on the men's basketball sidelines, helping to groom the Lions as they enter into their 2011-12 campaign.

Prior to joining the Saint Leo sidelines in mid-August, Beamish served as an assistant coach at his alma mater, University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, where he helped the Pointers to a successful 26-4 record and a Sweet 16 appearance.

On the court, the Wisconsin Rapids native had a prolific four-year career at Stevens Point.  During his time playing for the Pointers he earned first team All-Conference honors for two seasons, and captained his squad during his junior and senior seasons.  Starting every game three out of his four years at Stevens Point, Beamish helped lead the team to two Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Regular Season and Tournament Championships, and three NCAA Tournament appearances.

Beamish's collegiate success stemmed from an already successful high school career where he was a two-year All-Conference player at Wisconsin Rapids Lincoln High School.  Named the Player of the Year his senior season, he helped Lincoln to a conference championship riding a 25-1 record before heading to Stevens Point.

Beamish earned his Bachelor's Degree in Interpersonal and Organizational Communication from UWSP.
