Jack Taylor, a guard at Grinnell (Iowa) College, scored an NCAA record 138 points in Tuesday's 179-104 victory over visiting Faith Baptist Bible. Taylor, a 5-foot-10 sophomore, hit 52-of-108 shots, including 27-of-71 3-pointers. He also hit 7-of-10 free throws.
"I felt like anything I tossed up was going in," Taylor told The Associated Press.
The previous record was 113 by Bevo Francis of Rio Grande against Hillsdale in 1954.
Grinnell plays an uptempo game unlike any other team in the country and has led the nation in scoring 17 of the past 19 seasons. The Pioneers' previous individual scoring record was 89 points by Griffin Lentsch last Nov. 19 against Principia.
Taylor, who transferred from Wisconsin-La Crosse this year, scored 58 points at halftime and then averaged four points a minute in the second half. His total overshadowed an impressive performance from Faith Baptist's David Larson, who hit 34-of-44 shots for 70 points.
Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony was informed of Taylor's feat after a win over the Hornets in New Orleans.
"I never heard of nothing like that. That's like a video game," he said. "How can you shoot 100 times, though?"
