wilt chamberlain: the 100-point game


  wilt chamberlain——the 7 foot 1 center for the philadelphia warriors——had a reputation for pounding opponents into submission with basket and after basket. but on march 2, 1962, in hershey, pa., “the big dipper” put all his previous efforts to shame. chamberlain scored 100 points——a new single-game scoring record——in leading the warriors to victory against the new york knicks, 169 to 147. no player since has ever reached triple digits in a professional game of basketball.
