He scored his last two points to give him 100, by hitting a shot from about 40 feet, with three defenders around him, just as the final buzzer sounded. I believe he went on to play for the Celtics. For anyone wondering, I was not at the game. That would have happened about three months before I was born.

Most remember Wilt Chamberlain scoring 100 points in the NBA, in the early 1960's, but him being a Center and close to the basket and was fouled many times. He could also dunk very easily, while dunking the ball in college was not allowed in college until many years later. I consider Selvy's accomplishment far greater as he was a Guard.

His stats for the night? 41 of 66 from the floor and 18 of 22 FT's. He estimated 12 baskets would have been three-pointers. He led the nation with a 41.7 average.
Any idea who coached Wilt when he scored 100 points? That would be Frank McGuire.

Wilt loved McGuire. A few years later, Wilt provided advice to another big Center and advised him to go to South Carolina and play for McGuire. McGuire did not think South Carolina was ready for an African American player and Lew Alcindor took his talents to UCLA. We did get the second best big man that year, Mike Grosso, but the Tobacco Road schools ruled him ineligible and he never played for us.

What might have been....

Nice pics, but take your #%^%#% signature elsewhere. I wonder how long Coach Dumbo practiced that?

I'm Eddie. My dad was a HUGE Gamecock fan. Especially basketball. Got the pictures signed at a meet and greet when I was a youngster. Also had a whole set of the artwork prints like the one of Kevin Joyce at one time. Lost the rest though.

I had forgotten McGuire even coached in the NBA and had no idea he was coaching that game, I talked to him many times and asked him many times what his favorite memory coaching basketball was and he never brought that up. He always talked South Carolina memories I guess because I was a young diehard GAMECOCK fan though he did tell me beating Wilt in college was a big time memory... Thanks!

Here are a couple of pics of Frank McGuire that I stumbled on. They offer a good teacher and student perspective on Frank McGuire and Dean Smith.

UNC head coach Frank McGuire seen with his player Dean Smith on the sideline during UNC's 1954 season.



McGuire congratulating Smith after UNC's 1982 NCAA championship.

Dean Smith played at Kansas for Phog Allen. He was an assistant to Frank at UNC beforeFrank left to coach the Warriors in the NBA.

I think that's Smith all the way down on the other end. The player's similar facial features threw me off.

The UNC pics are from a photographer named Hugh Morton who chronicled UNC sports over the years. He died in 2006.

Here is the blog dedicated to his pictures.

http://blogs.lib.unc.edu/morton/

Even though the pics are about UNC, they are a pretty phenomenal documentation of the early days of college sports.

It would be nice if we could find something similar on the Gamecock side of life.

The most upset I have ever been over a USC loss was when they lost to NC State in the ACC Tournament Roche's junior year. USC's only loss to an ACC team that year. And a loss that kept USC out of the NCAA Tournament.

Since I lived in western NC and my school was populated mostly by UNC fans, with a few Duke, NC State, and Wake fans mixed in, the rivalries were probably more intense for me than they would have been for someone not surrounded by what I was surrounded with. One other guy and myself were the only USC fans in the school. I remember being very nervous before and during almost every ACC game and very relieved if USC won. My proudest moment was when USC beat UNC for the ACC tournament title the next year. I miss the good USC teams, and I miss the intensity of the rivalries. Though I'm not sure that I could take that much pressure now.
I remember that NCS game and it about killed me. I think it was Cremins who made a lazy pass and NCS player was watching and grabbed it.
I watched the NC ACC championship game on couch with my beautiful wife and I jumped as high as the USC player did over Dedmon.
