Jack Taylor scored 138 points against Faith Baptist Bible

GRINNELL, Iowa -- Poor Division III Faith Baptist Bible. Not only did they lose 179-104 to Grinnell College last night but 5-foot-10 sophomore guard Jack Taylor set a single-game scoring record for any level of college basketball with 138 points. Jeff Eisenberg writes:

Of the 136 field goal attempts Grinnell had in the game, Taylor attempted 108 of them, making 52. He sank 25 of 37 shots from inside the arc, 27 of 71 3-pointers and 7 of 10 free throws to get to 138 points.

Since Grinnell's trademark is a frenetic, up-tempo system similar to Loyola Marymount's offense in the 1990s, the Pioneers typically have 12 to 15 players log roughly 10 to 15 minutes a game to keep them fresh enough to thrive. Taylor, on the other hand, logged 36 minutes Tuesday night, suggesting that Grinnell [jackass head coach David Arseneault] wanted him to vie for the record just like it had [Grinnell College's Griffin] Lentsch do a year ago when he scored 89 points in 36 minutes.

ESPN caught up with Taylor after the game.

Jack also broke NCAA records for field goals (52), field goals attempted (108), 3-pointers (27) and 3-pointers attempted (71). "Taylor finished off his night in style by scoring a D-III record 28 consecutive points for the Pioneers, including eight 3-pointers and seven straight without a miss."

Thrilling stuff. Faith Baptist Bible fell to 0-5. He scored more points than there were spectators. His game is 'off the dribble' and he had no assists.

"...Tuesday night he made an impact that rippled across the nation."

Because, you know, Grinnell is known for its tradition of social activism.
