    Grayer and Lafester 1988 box score

    For those that are too young to have seen Grayer play, check out this box score to see what he was all about.

    http://blogs.desmoinesregister.com/d...-state-box.pdf

    39 minutes, 28 points, 6 boards, 3 assists, 5 steals, 11-14 free throws...57% from the field, 50% from the 3 point line, 1 foul.
    It's a pretty safe bet that William Woods was guarding him since he fouled out and that Grayer was defending Dumas since he was an outstanding player that had an off night.

    Also, it looks like Lafester was hot that day.

    A must have for any Cyclone fan is the the 87 Iowa game. It reminds you of what Hilton magic really is and why fans loved Orr's teams.

    Re: Grayer and Lafester 1988 box score

    Saw that last night, it's nice to see the raw numbers as an adult and understand them. When I was a kid all I knew was that Grayer was "totally awesome man". Thats a career night for most players, yet that was the norm for him.

    Re: Grayer and Lafester 1988 box score

    When Lefester was on he was a top 5 in the country player. Could not be stopped by anyone and flat out just dominated. When he was off he was as good as Wes Eichmeyer.

    Re: Grayer and Lafester 1988 box score

    Check out "G-Man's" line: 3 turnovers to 8 assists. Damn near the magical "3:1" ratio. I don't remember if he came down with mono that spring, or if it was just a bad virus, but I do remember that he got sick late in conference play and losing him really hurt our postseason chances.

    Re: Grayer and Lafester 1988 box score

    Maybe it's just me, but seeing the name John Starks in the boxscore caused me to have a rage blackout. I came to a couple minutes ago with no clothes on, covered in blood and a dead horse in my office, not sure what happened.

    I always hated John Starks as a player.

    And I distinctly remember one Hawkeye fan I knew say, "At least we shut Grayer down."

    Attendance: 5100. Yikes. Apparently OSU wasn't always a tough and hostile environment.

    Just looked it up, actual seating capacity was only 6,381 up until the 2000 season, when they expanded to 13,611. Had no idea.

    I knew they had expanded, but had no clue about the attendance capacity.

    Re: Grayer and Lafester 1988 box score

    I'd love to see a box score of the night Lafester scored 54, seems to me Grayer had 36 that night as well.

    Re: Grayer and Lafester 1988 box score

    yeah, the old GIA was something else. Seating capacity 6,300 - and the farthest fan away from the court in the upper deck was about 70 ft. (or so it seemed)

    Re: Grayer and Lafester 1988 box score

    Anyone have the stats on how many times Grayer went over 30? Or 40? Seems to me that he hit 30+ on a fairly regular basis, and being a younger fan then, I thought it was somewhat normal to see that.

    Yep. And there was too much tradition to tear it down so they literally raised the roof to expand. I think it cost nearly as much or maybe even more than if they would have just built a new one.
