Gaffield is one of the top long-range shooters on the team. Seventy of his 110 career field goals have been three-pointers.

2002-03: Last year he shot a career-best 43.6 percent (17 of 39) from beyond the arc and his 17 treys were the sixth most on the team. His top performance came against RPI when he made 5 of 7 field goals, including all three of his three-point attempts, and scored a season-high 13 points. He also had 10 points against both Stanford and Brown. An early season ankle sprain and a mid-season wrist injury limited him to 22 games.

2001-02: As a sophomore Gaffield tied for third on the team in treys with 26. His best game came against Stony Brook when he scored 14 points on 5 of 10 shooting from the field, including 4 of 8 from three-points range. Against Columbia he led the team in scoring with 10 points. Gaffield started the first two games and later in the season missed two games with an ankle injury.

2000-01: As a freshman, 27 of Gaffield's 34 field goals were three-pointers. He finished second on the team in threes. Against Rhode Island, he made 5 of 7 shots from the field, all three-pointers, and finished with 17 points, 14 of which came in the second half. That performance earned him Ivy League Rookie of the Week honors. Against Columbia he hit the winning basket on a putback of an Isaiah Cavaco miss as time expired in the second overtime. It was his only field goal of the game. In all, Gaffield had three double-figure scoring games.

At Glebe Collegiate Institute: Gaffield averaged 24 points, seven rebounds and five assists as a senior. The team finished 26-7. For his efforts, Gaffield was named first team All-Ontario and second team All-Canada by the Toronto Star. He also played baseball and volleyball.
