The oldest member of the 1984 NCAA championship team, Clifton Dairsow arrived quietly on the 1983-84 Hoyas and left in the same manner.

Dairsow joined the Hoyas in the fall of 1983, a 26 year old Army veteran who was the same age as assistant coach Craig Esherick. Listed in the 1983-84 media guide as a "calming influence" on the team, Dairsow filled the role of reserve forward caused with the late transfer of sophomore David Dunn just prior to the season, averaging 1.7 points in 18 games that season. He scored 21 of his 31 points in the first seven games of the season, and just 10 points thereafter. Dairsow was the only active player on the roster not to have played in the 1984 post-season, including the national championship game.

By season's end, his departure was quiet and without headlines, as Dairsow departed for Geneva College, a Division III school northwest of Pittsburgh. He played two seasons for the Golden Tornadoes, averaging 13 points and 10 rebounds, and graduated in 1987.
