Grinnell's Jack Taylor Scores 138 Points to Shatter Record
Grinnell College beat Faith Baptist Bible College 179-104 last night. Jack Taylor scored an astounding 138 points on 108 shots. From ESPN:
"There was a point during the second half where I hit a number of threes in a row -- maybe seven or eight -- I felt like anything I threw up was going in," Taylor said. "I've been in the zone before but I've never taken so many shots."
The previous record was 113 points, scored against Hillsdale College in 1954. That was the last year that anyone scored in the triple digits.
By the end of the night, Taylor was 52-for-108 (27-for-71 from the 3-point line) and he'd established a new collegiate record.
So here's my question. I don't really follow basketball enough to weigh in here, but is this a particularly impressive average? The point total is amazing. But who gets 108 shots in a game?
