The article profiles basketball player Oliver Lafayette of the Houstan Rockets. Lafayette's career path has a long way from a Division II junior college to the National Collegiate Athletic Association's Division I stardom. Houston guard Lafayette made that leap as easily as he makes a basket in a layup line. Both were home games for Lafayette, a native of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. He led Houston by averaging 30.0 points on 59.4 percent shooting from the field and 65.2 percent shooting from 3-point range.
