1. Frank Selvy. Franklin Delano "Frank" Selvy (born November 9, 1932 in Corbin, Kentucky) is a former basketball player. (Submitted on May 18, 2009, by Brian Scott of Anderson, South Carolina.) 

2. 50 years since Selvy's 100. For half a century, Frank Selvy has been answering questions about one particular game from his senior season at Furman. (Submitted on May 18, 2009, by Brian Scott of Anderson, South Carolina.) 

3. Frank Selvy Statistics. Drafted by the Baltimore Bullets in the 1st round (1st pick, 1st overall) of the 1954 NBA draft. (Submitted on May 18, 2009, by Brian Scott of Anderson, South Carolina.) 

4. Selvy doubts 100-point game will ever be topped. Never say never, but 100 points in a college basketball game by a single player would seem to be one of those potentially "unbreakable" records like DiMaggio's hitting streak in baseball. (Submitted on May 18, 2009, by Brian Scott of Anderson, South Carolina.)
