Isaiah Stevens (531) surpassed Ryan Yoder (530) as Colorado State’s all-time leader in assists on Saturday.

The senior point guard came into the matchup with Wyoming needing just two more to achieve the honor and was officially able to break the record against the Pokes up in Laramie.

For Stevens, who also ranks top 5 in scoring, the record is well deserved. Going back to his freshman season in 2019-20, the savvy point guard from Allen, Texas, has consistently been one of the most impactful players in college basketball.

Whether it’s knocking down a game-winning shot, something Stevens has done a handful of times in his career; or facilitating an open look for a teammate, something Stevens has now done more than any player that’s ever donned the Green & Gold, No. 4 has consistently delivered for the Rams.

Beyond his numbers though, which are becoming increasingly more historically significant by the game, perhaps the greatest testament to Stevens’ impact is that he has been the point guard for some of the most successful teams in school history. With Stevens running the point, CSU has twice tied for the most league wins in a single year (14). Stevens and the Rams earned a 6-seed in the 2022 NCAA Tournament as well — the highest ever by any CSU team.

It’s unclear at this time if Stevens intends to return to Fort Collins for a fifth season and use his extra year of eligibility. Regardless of whether he does or not though, the 6-foot guard will easily go down as one the best players to ever come through Moby Arena.
