Opinion | Wood column: Frank Selvy had the highs and lows

I remember the first time I heard about Frank Selvy. I was shooting baskets with my Uncle Jack, he of the clever jump-hook shot, and we were talking about Wilt Chamberlain, who had just set a National Basketball Association record by scoring 100 points in a game against the New York Knicks. A remarkable achievement that still stands as the single-game record in pro basketball. At that time, Wilt was just about unstoppable, and to a 12-year-old, all he had to do was stand under the basket and drop the ball in. Then my uncle told me about Frank Selvy, not a giant, but a guard like me, a shooter, who had scored 100 points in a college game. I had to learn more.
