On March 2, 1962, Wilt Chamberlin scored 100 points in a single game against the New York Knicks and revolutionized the game of basketball. Author Pomerantz tells the story of the record-breaking game while leading listeners into Wilt's world, a mélange of athletic greatness, social prejudice, and sexual exploits. Narrator Stephen Hoye carefully weaves a history of the players, as well as the fans, journalists, and team officials present at the big game, thereby stretching out the climax of Chamberlin's historic athletic achievement. Hoye delivers the text with a crisp cadence reminiscent of a skilled sports announcer. By the end, listeners who didn't will wish they'd seen the game.
