How Grinnell College player set NCAA scoring record, 138 points in a game (+video)
Jack Taylor, a 5-foot-10 guard at Grinnell College, hit 18 three-point shots in the last 20 minutes of the game. His total of 138 points helped Grinnell College beat Faith Baptist Bible 179-104 Tuesday.
The Division III guard shattered the NCAA scoring record with 138 points, hoisting a mind-boggling 108 attempts — or one shot every 20 seconds — in eclipsing the previous record by 25 points.
Taylor made 27 of 71 3-point attempts, was 52 of 108 overall from the field and added seven free throws on 10 attempts while playing 36 minutes in Grinnell's 179-104 victory over Faith Baptist Bible on Tuesday night in Grinnell, Iowa.
"That's crazy, man. I don't care what level you're at. Scoring 138 points is pretty insane," the Lakers' superstar said after Los Angeles' victory over the Nets.
Even Taylor was having a hard time processing his feat.
"I don't think reality has set in yet," said the 5-foot-10, 170-pound sophomore from Black River Falls, Wis.
