Wayman Tisdale was the first college freshman ever chosen as a Consensus First Team NCAA All American - 1982-1983. That season he finished with the 8th highest total of points per game, 24.5, and pulled down 10.3 rebounds per/game and was chosen the Big Eight Conference Player of the Year. Tisdale also had the honor of being the first Oklahoma University basketball player to be chosen as a Consensus first-or-second team All-American in the last 25 years.
Wayman was a three-time NCAA Consensus First Team All-American prior to leaving the college ranks after his junior year.
The big kid, 6-ft 9, 230-pounds, notched a NCAA leading 919 points in his sophomore season, and his 27.0 ppg was 5th best in the USA. Guided by coach Billy Tubbs, Tisdale helped the Sooners post a solid 29-5 record 1983-1984, ranked Number 7 in the AP Final Season Poll.
As a junior, Wayman Tisdale again led all NCAA basketball players with 932 points and placed 7th with 25.2 points per game average. However in the 1985 NCAA Midwest Regional Postseason Final, he was double-teamed and held to just 11 points in a 63-61 upset loss to Memphis State .
Wayman Tisdale was the 2nd player selected in the 1985 NBA draft, after the NY Knicks chose Patrick Ewing of Georgetown.
Drafted by the Indiana Pacers, Tisdale poured in 1,192 points, very solid numbers of 14.7 ppg for a rookie in 1985-1986. He compiled over 10 ppg in his first 12 consecutive NBA seasons. Only in his last year did he score under 10.0 ppg.
In 1989-1990 and 1990-1991 he regristered career-highs with 22.3 ppg and an even 20.0.
Although, he was a well-regard team player, he none-the-less had a poor ratio to career games played versus playoff games - 840 to 22.
