138 Points Scored By One Player In College Basketball – Record Breaking Performance
Jack Taylor had a game for the ages last night as he scored a mind boggling 138 points for Division III Grinnell as they beat Faith Baptist 179-104.
The sophomore point guard shot 52 for 108 from the field, including 27 of 71 from 3 point range. Taylor breaks the previous record of 113 points, which was eclipsed by Rio Grande’s Bevo Francis back in 1954.
“I felt like anything I tossed up was going in” said Taylor, who was able to accomplish the feat in only 36 minutes of playing time.
Taylor, played one season for Wisconsin- La Crosse and then transferred to Grinnell, which is located about 50 miles east of Des Moines Iowa.
