Cedrick Hensley
The same night Wagner scored 100, Hensley, a junior, pumped home 101 for Heritage Christian Academy in Texas City, Texas. In the process, he became the 12th schoolboy to top the century mark. (Wagner was No. 13, and two more players have accomplished the feat since.) Wagner's squad beat Banff Christian 178-28. Hensley was gunning for 100, but it looked like he would come up short. He had "only" 83 points with three minutes left and was battling exhaustion. But he managed to score 18 more points, not missing a shot the rest of the way.

Among the sources for this list was "Basketball's Most Wanted," by Floyd Conner. The New York Times, Washington Post, USA Today and other newspapers were used in gathering details.
