Frank Benjamin Saul (born February 16, 1924) is an American retired National Basketball Association (NBA) player.

Raised in Westwood, New Jersey, Saul spent three years at Holy Trinity High School in Hackensack, New Jersey, where he played both baseball and basketball. He transferred to Seton Hall Preparatory in West Orange, New Jersey for his senior year.

He played collegiately for the Seton Hall Pirates men's basketball, leaving college after his freshman year to serve for three years in the United States Army during World War II. He scored his 1,000th career point in a game against Creighton University on March 5, 1949, making him the first player from Seton Hall to reach that milestone.

Saul won four consecutive NBA championships with the Rochester Royals in 1951 and with the Minneapolis Lakers from 1952 to 1954. He and Steve Kerr are the only two players in NBA history who won four championships with two different teams in consecutive seasons. Saul was known as "Pep Saul" during his career.

Saul has been a resident of East Hanover, New Jersey.
