    Do I recall that he had diabetes as a likely major contributing factor?

    We sure will. Thanks for the information. He and DeRon are two guys who could have been a lot better but injuries cost them.

    I can't say it led to it, but yes he is diabetic.

    Having diabetes increases your risk of having a heart attack or stroke by 3 or 4 times. I should know!

    I read the OP and my heart sank. Seemed like a great guy and he was a wonderful representative of Indiana University.

    Here is to a speedy recovery.

    Graham was 3rd team All-American out of Floyd Central, ranked ahead of Calbert and Greg Graham. Outside of Alford, I've never seen a better shooter at IU.

    Pat Graham's FT shot form was one of the best that I ever saw.
    Pat Graham, Steve Alford, Jay Edwards, Rick Mount, Shanna Zolman, Seth Colclasure
    Shanna Zolman had the National FT % record for HS girls, and Seth Colclasure had the FT % record for boys. Both Hoosier HS players.

    He should do well. Was his surgery an angioplasty or bypass surgery?
    Recovery time is very different.
    Either way, recovery should happen. Wishing the best.
