We're celebrating Episode #100 of the Over and Back Podcast and what better topic to cover than Wilt Chamberlain's 100 point game on March 2, 1962 in Hershey, Pennsylvania. To ensure we kept it "100" we uncovered 100 facts about Wilt's 100 point game. Facts and tidbits include a look at where the game ranks all-time statistically, anecdotes about many of the players involved including Al Attles, Paul Arizin, Tom Meschery, Guy Rodgers, "Jumpin'" Johnny Green, York Larese, Darrall Imhoff, Cleveland Buckner and many more.

We tell the fascinating tale of Ermo and Evo Ionni, the iconic "100" picture and what happened to the game ball. Lastly, we look back at March 2, 1962 in history with a peek at the Peanuts Comic strip of the day, who was on the cover of that day's TIME magazine, what famous rock star was born on this very day and, of course, Billboard's Number One song.
