Grinnell’s Jack Taylor Scores 138 Points, Shatters NCAA Record

jack taylor scores 138 points

I’m willing to bet that Google was working overtime last night with people searching for the name ‘Jack Taylor.’ The Grinnell College guard put up 138 points in one game in a 179-104 victory against Faith Baptist Bible Tuesday, shattering the previous NCAA record.

In a game that saw Taylor make 52 of 108 shots (27 of 71 from behind the 3-point line), Taylor told ESPN, “I felt like anything I threw up was going in.” Taylor took 77% of the team’s shots to break the NCAA scoring record, formerly held by Bevo Francis of Rio Grande’s 113 points against Hillsdale in 1954.

The Grinnell guard reached this amazing feat by shooting the rock once every 20 seconds in a performance that he credits to “the man upstairs” for “multiplying” his talents for a record breaking night. Ironically, he entered the game making only 11 of his last 41 shots, struggling to find his shot as of late.

I think it’s safe to say that Div. III guard Jack Taylor has found his shot again, and overnight stardom. Literally, lol.
