Princeton great , Ruklick, had assist on Wilt’s 100-point basket 50 years ago
It was March 2, 1962, in the quaint town of Hersey, Pa., that Joe Ruklick and Wilt Chamberlain made history together.
Chamberlain had a magical night playing for the old Philadelpha Warriors, pouring in basket after basket against the New York Knicks and even making 28 of 32 free throws along the way. His last basket gave him exactly 100 points on the night, a mark that still stands today 50 years later.
The assist on the basket was by none other than Ruklick, the Princeton great. Though there was no video taken that night, a radio clip captured the moment: “Ruklick into Chamberlain. He made it! He made it! He made it! A Dipper Dunk! He made it! The fans are all over the floor. They stopped the game. People are running out on the court. One-hundred points for Wilt Chamberlain.”
