In one hundred years of Georgetown basketball, only three men have led their team in scoring four consecutive years. The first of these was Frank Schlosser, who enrolled in Georgetown's law school in the fall of 1908.

Little is known about Schlosser's background, only that he had played on a local Army team prior to Georgetown. Whatever his past, Schlosser knew basketball, and established himself as a reliable and resourceful scorer. Schlosser teamed with Fred Rice (LLB 1910) as Georgetown's frontcourt combination in 1908-09, as the Hoyas posted a 9-5 record with wins over Virginia, Navy, and Penn State. Following a team high 9.1 points per game, Schlosser slipped in average in his second season but still led the Hilltoppers in scoring through a 5-7 season, the only losing record in the sport's first 19 years at Georgetown.

Schlosser's best season came in 1910-11, as the G-men won 13 of 20 games. Efforts of 26 points against Catholic and 28 against Gallaudet set school records, and Schlosser finished with a 13.0 point per game average. In his final season, Georgetown won 11 of 17 and Schlosser maintained a 10.1 scoring average, exactly one-half the team's average of 20.2 points per game.

In the vintage era of Georgetown basketball, Schlosser is one of only three men to average in double figures in scoring for his entire career. And while the memory of his efforts was perhaps too distant to be considered during the initial years of the Athletic Hall of Fame, his career remains one of the era's best.
