Corbin High School
Frank Selvy was an outstanding player for the Corbin Redhounds in 1949 and 1950. He would be named to the All-State Team in 1950 while leading Corbin to a third place finish in the Sweet 16. Frank was a sleeper recruit that woke up Coach Adolph Rupp when he watched him play at the East-West All Star Game in 1950. University of Kentucky followed with a scholarship offer, but Frank was loyal to his Furman commitment. The rest is basketball history! He had a stellar All-American college career and a 100 point scoring game. Frank Selvy is the Kentucky player who got away and found fertile ground in South Carolina. He was the number one draft choice for the Minneapolis Lakers and would one day play in the Los Angeles Laker backcourt with Jerry West. Welcome home, Frank Selvy, to the Kentucky High School Basketball Hall of Fame.
