Division III Basketball Player Scores 138 Points In A Single Game

Jack Taylor is a 5-foot-10 guard at Grinnell College, and last night he scored 138 points in his team's game against Faith Baptist Bible. Division III ball is essentially a somewhat glorified high-school game, but still, 138 points! That's insane, and Taylor now has the NCAA single-game scoring record.

The ridiculousness of the feat really comes into focus when you take a look at Taylor's stat line. He was 52 of 108 from the field, 27 of 71 from three-point range, and seven of 10 from the free-throw line. Taking 108 shots may seem impossible, but Grinnell runs a notoriously fast-paced offense, and Taylor had some kind of hot hand. Or he's just kind of a dick.

We recommend that Taylor capitalize on his fame while it lasts. Why not take 109 shots next game, or make a vow to try for 150 points every game? His teammates would surely hate him, but it's just Division III basketball. Fuck it.

Here are some video highlights from the game:
