After a poor shooting weekend, Grinnell guard Jack Taylor was given the green light to shoot his way out of a slump.
It only took 108 shots for Taylor to make a mockery of the college basketball record books.
Taylor scored 138 points to shatter the NCAA scoring record in Division III Grinnell's 179-104 victory over Faith Baptist Bible on Tuesday night in Grinnell, Iowa.
Taylor, a 5-foot-10, 170-pound sophomore from Black River Falls, Wis., made 27 of 71 3-point attempts, was 52 of 108 overall from the field and added seven free throws on 10 attempts in 36 minutes.

Looks like both teams just stood under their respective baskets dropping the ball in then throwing it down court to the other team......
I saw part of the game on the news. Impressive. But he didn’t lead in assists...
High score =/= great game always. It usually means that the defense sucked.
This team gets the ball and shoots a three pointer ASAP. Interesting strategy.
How do you explain scoring 141 points and still lose by a margin of 117?
At this rate, it no longer becomes sport but a simple execution for public consumption.
If you had DeVry taking the 116 points...
Fight! Fight! Inner Light!
Kill, Quakers, Kill!
(That cheer started at Sidwell Friends and spread to Quaker schools all over the country. I wonder if they use it at Grinnell?)
Close. Taylor's team mates kept feeding him the ball since he seemed to have the hot hand...except his shooting percentage was less than 50%.
Couple that with 48 turnovers by the other team and you have the perfect storm. Even still, quite an accomplishment.
Odd thing is though....one player on the other team scored 77 points and if not for Taylor's 138 point total, that would have been the lead story in sports today.
A white guy setting a basketball scoring record?
That’s just gotta be RAAAAAACIST!
His team: "You Wilt, I'm open man."
Other team: "Ummm, someone might want to cover him."
Sounds like both teams were pitiful.
In other news, the player he was guarding scored 104 points.
The basket should be raised by two feet, especially for the pros. Those guys can almost drop the ball into the basket with no effort these days.
