Biography

Wayman Tisdale was a 6-9 (2.05) forward for Oklahoma when he won gold at the 1983 Pan American Games and was named to the 1984 Olympic team. As a college player he was one of only 10 players ever to be named first-team All-American for three years (1983-85). Tisdale then played for 12 years in the NBA, first with the [Indiana Pacers], then with [Sacramento], before finishing his career with the [Phoenix Suns]. He averaged 15.3 points per game for his career, with an average of over 20 for five years, with a career best of 21.5 in 1989-90.

He succumbed to the disease two years later.
