50 years later, Attles recalls Wilt’s biggest game

OK, this has nothing to do with research, but it does involve an Aggie worth remembering and his participation in an event the like of which we’re likely to never see. If you’re not interested in basketball, so long and we’ll see you next time.

“On March 2, 1962, Al Attles went 8-for-8 from the field while flipping in 17 points during the Philadelphia Warriors’ victory over the New York Knicks.”

Attles was a second-year player from N.C. A&T.  He had a nice little game that night, but no one noticed then and no one remembers now.  All anyone remembers about that legendary night is Wilt Chamberlain.  At SI.com, Attles, a Basketball Hall of Fame member and one of the greatest Aggie athletes ever, reflects on an astounding game and an astounding teammate.
